NAW Large Company CFO Roundtable, Spring 2017 Session

May 2-3, 2017 at the O’Hare Hilton

“The ability to exchange ideas openly and honestly in a non-competitive environment is one of the reasons I look forward to attend NAW’s Large Company CFO Roundtable. I always leave these meetings with new ideas to improve our business. The group is relatively small which encourages participation from everyone in attendance.”
Willfredo Figueras, Vice President & Chief Financial Officer, Laird Plastics

Eligibility: Companies with $100M to $999M in annual revenue

The NAW Large Company Roundtable is the only opportunity that provides networking and benchmarking exclusively with other top executives of non competing, like-sized Wholesale-Distribution companies.

The NAW Large Company CFO Roundtable for direct members was created as a new mechanism for the financial executive of large distribution enterprises to network with non-competing peers in multiple lines of trade on key operations issues.

This by invitation roundtable is composed of executives from large companies that meet in Chicago two times per year and is highly interactive. The annual fee is $1,500 per member, which covers meeting costs for two events in a twelve month cycle. Participants are expected to cover the cost of their hotel and travel. Once the annual fee is paid, there are no additional fees to attend the meetings, which will last one day beginning with a reception and dinner the evening before.

The participating companies can also name a senior level alternate who can take the place of the finance executive, should that person be unable to attend the scheduled meeting.
