Program:  CABI – Past, Present & Future

Moderated by Dennis Smith, CABI President

CABI has a long and storied history as the resource for the business brokerage profession in Colorado. From its nascent beginnings in 1998 through the present day, CABI has been a leader in education, professionalism, and bringing together practitioners and supporting industry professionals, such as lenders, attorneys, accountants, financial planners, and others.

CABI’s dedication to education was a fundamental founding principle that has guided the organization through the years. Many of the old-timers will remember the first ever IBBA course presented to CABI in 1999 by Darrell Fouts, a founding member of M&A Source. Darrell taught the iconic IBBA 300 “Mergers And Acquisitions Of Privately Held Companies” and donated his teaching fee to CABI as a way to help fund our emerging association.

Throughout the years, CABI has hosted many more IBBA courses; offered an annual Real Estate Update Course; and delivered other relevant educational courses. However, the education environment is evolving and, through no fault of CABI, there are fewer opportunities for the traditional delivery of education to our members.

In the past year, the CABI Board has initiated a program called the “CABI Video Project.” It is a video series of educational modules based on the fundamental principles of business brokerage. Our January 20 meeting will be an opportunity for members to see the progress to date and participate in a discussion of the project and its relevance to CABI. The CABI Board will put forth a resolution recommending the continued production of this project and will outline the process by which we will vote on its future. 

It’s important that we have the fullest participation possible, so we are encouraging everyone to attend this important meeting and to provide their valuable input.
