The members of the Bartell-Barber Family believe that they can carry out their family mission more effectively and better apply it in business through a cooperative effort. To facilitate cooperation, they have developed the Bartell-Barber Family Council as the primary agent to achieve family consensus on goals for the business and family ownership entities.

The purpose of the Bartell-Barber Family Council is to maintain the family's strong corporate culture and value system, acting as the primary bridge between generations to preserve these core values and practices. It also serves as the primary communication channel between the Family Council and the operating company boards to ensure that family goals and guidelines will be followed.

Additionally, the Bartell-Barber Family Council oversees and maintains the family plan for a smooth succession of business ownership from generation to generation.
