Employee Ownership Month 2014 –
Download Your Press & Event Planning Kit Today
Every October, The ESOP Association and its members celebrate Employee Ownership Month (EOM). Each summer, the Press & Event Planning Kit, which highlights EOM activities of ESOP Association members, is shared with all corporate members to help generate event ideas.
You can now download your copy of the 2014 Press & Event Planning Kit from The ESOP Association’s website. (Note: This is a large file. It may take time to download.)
EOM is a celebration of the incredible spirit of employee ownership and an opportunity to educate employee owners about the tremendous benefits of ESOPs. It’s also an opportunity to educate the public, elected officials, and the media as to why employee ownership through ESOPs is good public policy and this Kit will help you in your endeavors.
A special message from ESOP Association President, J. Michael Keeling:
“It is with significant pride that The ESOP Association provides this one of a kind Press & Event Planning Kit, or EOM Kit, to members. While it may sound like bragging, this attractive document is really an activities, advocacy, media, and even a marketing kit, in one. I feel comfortable that if any company went to a reputable inside-the-beltway public relations firm focused on public policy for such a document, the price tag would run in the thousands of dollars if developed from scratch. And, each year, the local and national recognition of ESOP companies’ activities during EOM becomes more prominent, helping our community make the case to our national decision makers that ESOPs are our best national jobs and retirement savings policy. Let us know if you have questions about using the Kit.”
Get started TODAY! Download your copy of the 2014 Press & Event Planning Kit.
If you have questions or would like to submit stories and photos about your EOM events, please send an email to media AT esopassociation.org.
You will receive in the coming weeks a complimentary copy of this year’s winning poster designed by Entertainment Partners located in Burbank, California (pictured at top).
Additional copies of the poster can be ordered online.

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