Certificate Program for Non-Professional ESOP Fiduciaries

Presented in partnership with The Beyster Institute

October 25-26, 2021

Kent State Hotel And Conference Center

215 S Depeyster St, Kent OH 44240

The only UNIVERSITY-BASED certificate program for non-professional ESOP Fiduciaries, The Ohio Employee Ownership Center is once again partnering with the Beyster Institute to bring their popular and well regarded program for Non-Professional ESOP Fiduciaries back to Ohio (and beyond) for 2020.

One of the fundamental resources of the employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) movement is the large group of dedicated, well-intentioned people who agree to serve as trustees or other fiduciaries on behalf of their company’s ESOP. If you are one of those dedicated people, you have undoubtedly felt the concern that is inevitable when taking on that sort of responsibility. The Beyster Institute at the University of California San Diego has developed a special intensive education program to help relieve some of that concern – the Certificate Program for Non-Professional ESOP Fiduciaries.

This program is not just another seminar or conference; it is a comprehensive, and demanding, certificate program that prepares you and your fellow in-house fiduciaries with the knowledge and training you need to do the job.
