Join us Sept. 17-18 as we gather virtually with members from the Iowa/Nebraska, Illinois, Minnesota/Dakotas, and Wisconsin Chapters of The ESOP Association for a fantastic Regional Conference offering:

•    Great content geared especially for middle managers, employee owners, and members of company ESOP committees.

•    Perfect timing, convenient scheduling. Content is spread over two half days, giving you time to absorb what you learn, keep up with key developments on the job, and come back fresh the next day with your new insights firmly top of mind.

•    Terrific value: Attend up to six sessions, with six hours of content. For members, that comes to only $25 an hour—so you can afford to send your whole ESOP committee!
