Accordingly, we are cancelling our National Conference, scheduled to take place May 20-22. While we are disappointed we will be unable to gather with the ESOP community in May, we fully appreciate and support government efforts to slow the spread of the virus and prevent our nation’s health care system from being overwhelmed.

Washington, DC, Feb. 20, 2020—The ESOP Association is pleased that employee ownership arose in the Democratic party Presidential debate last night and that multiple candidates were able to vocalize their support.
