Payroll and Equity sometimes seem to be at loggerheads more often than not, which may sound odd given their common goals of compensating employees and getting tax reporting just right. How do you solve this common dilemma? Join our NASPP CT meeting to help your company unravel this knotty issue. This expert panel of payroll and stock plan professionals will outline best practices for implementing efficient payroll reporting (from disciplined manual processes to system automation), dealing with data and communications to and from multiple payroll agencies, and overcoming common mistakes and challenges. Whether you work for a large or small company, this session will enable you to take a leadership role to help reduce your company’s risk of improper payroll reporting using a team approach.

Connecticut and Boston NASPP Chapters Co-Host the 7th Annual New England NASPP Regional Conference

The Connecticut and Boston NASPP Chapter Boards of Directors are happy to announce the 7th Annual Regional Conference to be held in the Greater Hartford, CT area on Thursday, July 16th 2015. As those who attended a Connecticut/Boston conference in the past know, this is a well-established event with an excellent opportunity for learning and networking with equity compensation colleagues. You will be able to attend five sessions through the day including two general sessions and three breakout sessions (each with 2 topics to choose from). The event will also offer a lot of networking opportunities, continuing education credits (CE and CPE credits) as well as keeping you well fed (e.g, breakfast, refreshments and lunch).


Important Considerations:

  • We are looking for sponsors for this event with opportunities including a traditional vendor exhibitor experience with terrific access by attendees to all sponsors (email for sponsorship details).
  • Both NASPP and Non-NASPP members are welcome to attend.
  • Attendee Cost: $0.00, Value: Priceless
  • Attendees will have the opportunity to earn both CEP and CPE credits for this event.
  • If you are thinking of staying overnight, we have a special room rate at the event hotel ($109.00), mention this event when booking your room over the phone.
