NAW Billion Dollar CEO Roundtable, 2017

October 11th-12th, 2017 at the O’Hare Hilton

“I have been attending the NAW Billion Dollar CEO Roundtable for many years. What makes these meetings unique is the chance to learn how other companies are dealing with similar strategy, policy, and operating issues. The agendas are filled with current topics important to all distribution executives, and the outside experts who speak are very insightful.”
