In-Person Meetings

This traditional learning format brings you face-to-face with our expert presenters. Meetings include a networking luncheon and provide opportunities to ask questions and interact with both presenters and other attendees. Meetings offer CPE, SHRM, and in some cases IRS continuing education credits.

Also see our Webinars, which provide online presentations on a variety of topics and are available both live and as prerecorded replays.

Equity Compensation for Companies Staying Privately Owned

For years, the standard thinking has been that companies will want to go public or, much more likely, be sold to an eager buyer, within a few to several years of starting. But more and more companies want to stay private for many years or even indefinitely. But how can these companies get liquidity for their employees and investors and stay private? This meeting focuses on practical solutions, such as redeeming shares, internal markets, secondary markets, and sales to an employee stock ownership plan. It also explores best practices in plan design, administration, and communications in entrepreneurial companies.
Annual Conference

Annual Employee Ownership Conference

As the nation's premiere gathering on employee ownership, the NCEO's annual conference provides an ideal opportunity to learn, network, and share your knowledge with others. The conference features interactive presentations and lectures from hundreds of top employee ownership experts and experienced leaders from successful employee-owned companies. Our 2017 conference will take place in Denver, Colorado (April 46, with preconference sessions on April 3) and will build on the sold-out success of our 2016 conference in Minneapolis, where over 1,660 attendees joined us. Registration will open in November, and the program will be posted in December.
