Please plan to join us at our kickoff event of the year: the 2015 ESCA/Foundation for Private Employee Ownership Leadership Summit. The Summit will be held at The Ritz-Carlton in Fort Lauderdale, Florida February 18-20.

Our annual Summit brings together top executives from S corporation ESOP companies and senior ESOP professionals from around the country. In addition to networking opportunities and topical discussions in the breakout sessions, you won’t want to miss hearing from influential Members of Congress about the political and policy agenda in the new year that could impact your S corporation ESOP.
