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.

Our 2019 conference will take place at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PA, from April 911 (preconference on April 8) and will build on the success of our April 2018 conference in Atlanta, where more than 1,800 attendees joined us.

Is an ESOP Right for You? An In-Depth Look at Employee Stock Ownership Plans

Enhance your company's legacy and benefits plan with an ESOP, the most tax-efficient method of exit planning. This one-and-a-half day seminar brings together leading experts from around the country to provide a comprehensive, practical guide to help you determine if an ESOP will work for your company, and if it does, how to set up a plan that will work. This seminar is also a great way to bring new employees at an ESOP company up to speed or be a refresher for anyone involved with ESOPs.
Fall ESOP Forum

Fall ESOP Forum

Both experienced attendees and newcomers will leave the Fall ESOP Forum better informed and better prepared to evaluate and implement the next steps for their companies. With 48 sessions in 12 timeslots, attendees can get a well-rounded introduction to all aspects of ESOPs, or they can dig deep on specific issues, from governance to sustainability to communications. Because the Forum combines three popular NCEO seminars into a single event, it blends the choice and flexibility of a conference with the give-and-take dialog of a working seminar. One-on-one sessions let you ask presenters specific questions about your company's situation, and our roundtable sessions are designed to let you speak with the individual presenters with the expertise you need. The 2017 Fall Forum in Tampa was a great success, and the 2018 Forum in Albuquerque, NM, was as well.
