About The ESOP Association

ESOP Association Background

Founded in 1978, The ESOP Association is the only organization that advocates on behalf of all companies that have, or are considering, an ESOP.

How did The ESOP Association get started?

We exist today thanks to the combined efforts of many people interested in ensuring that employee ownership would grow and thrive.

What are our members like?

How does The ESOP Association operate?
