Fall ESOP Forum

Fall ESOP Forum

Both experienced attendees and newcomers will leave the Fall ESOP Forum (Salt Lake City, September 16—18, 2019) 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 Fall Forum is expected to sell out, so do not miss your chance to be a part of the NCEO's newest event.
