Family Business Australia (FBA) assists family businesses to help harness their unique competitive advantage. They do this through memberships and referrals.

The main highlight of the site is their membership portal. Their members can register their business and manage their profile, recurring payments and access their materials and references. There is also a search engine built into the site that allows users to search by name, expertise and location. The user can also see their credentials on their profile page and what level of membership they have.

The site was built in WordPress and the theme was built in the Sage framework. The main difficulties with this project were migration. Up to this point, all of the memberships were done by hand/paper. There was no central database of their members so one had to be created.

The project ended up taking about 9 months to complete as there was a fair amount of waiting for the content and member database data to be inserted.
