NCEO Member Benefits
NewslettersOur 16-page newsletter Employee Ownership Report appears every two months. By far the most informative newsletter in the field, it contains news on legal, regulatory, and financial developments; ideas, tips, and reports on management practices in employee ownership firms; technical articles by employee ownership experts; research and case studies; a one-page pullout for rank-and-file employees; and company, media, and resource information. Many of the articles on this site are drawn from past issues of the newsletter. A PDF version of every newsletter back to 1997 is available in a searchable archive in the members-only area of this site.

We also have introduced a shorter, monthly newsletter on equity compensation issues in private companies and companies with broad-based plans, the Equity Compensation Report. Read a sample issue here.
Access to the Members AreaThe members area of this site features our Referral Service, a searchable database of over 200 consultants in employee ownership and participation; a guide to choosing consultants; a searchable archive of past NCEO newsletters; a stock plan glossary; a discussion forum; a directory of case studies classified by date, company size, type of plan, etc.; and more.
Free Live WebinarsMembers receive free access to live Webinars (online seminars) on topics related to both ESOPs and equity compensation. These Webinars include slides, presentations by industry experts and company insiders, and a chance to ask questions. ESOP Webinars cover subjects such as ESOP feasibility, issues for S corporation ESOPs, handling the ESOP repurchase obligation, using ESOPs for acquisitions, communicating the ESOP to employees, and getting employees involved. Equity compensation Webinars cover a variety of subjects, from current events to technical issues to big-picture strategy. See our list of forthcoming live Webinars.
Discounts on NCEO Publications, Meetings, and Other ItemsNCEO's many publications cover all aspects of employee ownership. Our annual conference is a three-day event bringing together all parts of the employee ownership community. We hold many ESOP workshops and other meetings throughout the year. Members receive large discounts, e.g., paying $25 instead of $35 for a book or $95 instead of $130 for a meeting. Members receive discounts on other things as well, such as survey results or training courses.
Individual ConsultationsMembers can call or email us anytime for general advice or to get questions answered. This is an invaluable service and helps both companies and consultants avoid costly mistakes. On a fee basis, NCEO Senior Staff Member Corey Rosen will meet with managers or employees to provide an overview of employee ownership.
Referral Service Membership BenefitsIn addition to the membership benefits listed above, a Referral Service membership provides a listing for consultants and other employee ownership service providers in our Referral Service in the members-only area of this site. While we do not recommend any individual firms, we do direct all inquiries for providers to the Referral Service. Referral Service members also receive preference for all NCEO speaking and meeting sponsorship opportunities.
