About the Webinar:

Since 1977 the ICA Group has been on a mission “to expand economic opportunity and self-determination by supporting initiatives that empower workers, build community assets, and root capital locally through employee ownership.”

If business succession planning is on your mind, join us for a webinar to learn about all of your options, including one you may not have otherwise thought of: selling your business to a broad base of your employees, called ’employee ownership’. The ICA Group is proud to present this special Succession Planning webinar at QEDC’s hosted event along with one of our ambassador partners, Charles Saunders (Certified Family Business Specialist, Retirement Plan Specialist, Care Specialist, MassMutual Pacific).

Our experts will discuss why it is more important than ever to have a plan for your business’ future, and what resources are available to help you along the way. We will discuss how you can make a plan that maximizes your financial return, maintains your business legacy, protects the jobs that you have worked hard to create and rewards your employees in a transition.
