How You Can Make a Difference = Advocacy Work for ESOPs

In June 2012, J. Michael Keeling, ESOP Association president, sat down to talk about why advocacy work is important to the ESOP community and how you, as employee owners, can make a difference in the discussion. We wanted to share that video with you today.

The framework of his presentation is a respected poll of senior Congressional staffers and top DC lobbyists that unveils what influences staff recommendations to members of Congress when they make major decisions, such as what tax benefits to eliminate in a tax reform bill.
