2014 Las Vegas Conference and Trade Show: Agenda & Trade Show Info Updated

esop-slide-template - 2014 Vegas Conference

The 2014 Preliminary Agenda for the Las Vegas Conference and Trade Show is now available.

CLICK HERE FOR AGENDA

While every ESOP company executive, participant and the professionals who provide services to ESOPs can breathe easy that so far ESOP laws are faring well as Congress considers tax reform, the past six months have created new perplexing developments arising from a Supreme Court ESOP case, and detailed outcome in lawsuits brought by DOL against ESOP fiduciaries.  If ever an ESOP fan needed to hear the “best” analysis of these developments and how they may affect his or her ESOP, it is now; and these new developments will be front and center in discussions, formal and informal at the 2014 Las Vegas Conference and Trade Show, as evidenced by the descriptions of topics.

In sum The 2014 Las Vegas Conference and Trade Show will review developments not ever foreseen at the 2013 Conference and Trade Show.

2014 Employee Owner Retreat

The Employee Owner Retreat is a course in capitalism for average pay employees that enhances each participant’s understanding of, and contribution to, her or his ESOP company.

2014 Employee Owner Retreat

August 14 – 16, 2014

Doubletree Suites

2111 Butterfield Rd

Downers Grove, IL 60515

Who Should Attend?

While any employee owner is welcome, the program is designed primarily to give hourly and salaried non-managerial employees an opportunity to learn with and from their peers. Typically, attendees come from outstanding ESOP companies, both service and manufacturing, where developing a culture of ownership is considered an important aspect of corporate success.

“I have attended four Employee Owner Retreats as an observer and can personally attest that the program is unique and inspiring,” said Employee Ownership Foundation President, J. Michael Keeling. “It is an incredible educational experience that energizes attendees and maximizes the company’s performance.”
