Baylor University's Institute for Family Business will present a seminar on Employee Stock Option Plans, the ninth program in its 1997 Waco Family Business Seminar Series, on Tuesday, Nov. 4, in the Harrington House Faculty Dining Center.

The program will start at 7:30 a.m. with breakfast, followed by a presentation by G. Maynard Green of the Waco law firm of Sheehy, Lovelace & Mayfield, P.C. He will speak on "Employee Stock Option Plans and Other Strategies to Sell the Family Owned Business/Ownership Transfer Options."

Green, a 1970 graduate of the University of Texas School of Law, has more than 20 years experience in the practice of law and serves as an adjunct professor at Baylor School of Law. Before joining Sheehy, Lovelace & Mayfield in 1977, he served as a partner in a Midland law practice and as a tax attorney in Findlay, Ohio.

Doris Sandberg, program director of the Institute for Family Business, said the seminar will raise awareness about the options involved in selling the family owned business. "It will explain those options and show participants new ways to make the sale profitable to both parties."

The 1997 Waco Family Business Seminar Series was planned by the Institute for Family Business specifically for family-owned firms in the Waco area. Sandberg said, "The seminar series is designed to develop skills and strategies for a healthy family business."

The Institute for Family Business is a nationally-recognized organization that provides educational programs for family-owned businesses throughout the state. For more information about the Nov. 4 seminar program call Sandberg at (254) 710-2265, extension 5.
