This full-day conference is an annual event designed for those who want to investigate employee ownership for their business, as well as those who work in established employee-owned companies. Nationally-known presenters join forces with representatives of Vermont's employee-owned companies to offer a comprehensive look at the ideals and the real world of employee ownership. This year's edition features:
- Morning Keynote from Steve Voigt on "Employee Ownership for the Long Haul."
- 18 workshops, with tracks for newcomers and those from established employee-owned companies on such themes as leadership, culture, and worker cooperatives.
- Information sharing and networking. Last year's conference drew dozens of representatives from Vermont's employee-owned companies who happily shared with newcomers how they made the transition to employee ownership and have navigated the challenges along the way.
