Join The Employers' Association at their HR Conference and 73rd Annual Business Meeting to learn how you can make organizational succession successful.

Learn how to build bench strength within the organization, establish and communicate a plan that assures sustainability and retain an owner’s legacy while maintaining financial strength. During the luncheon keynote address, Tim Schad (CEO and former President of NuCraft Furniture) and Bob Bockheim (current President) will talk about what thoughts went into the decision to “walk away” from leading the company business, what went “as planned,” and what could have been done differently.
