We are currently in the process of finalizing our virtual Fall 2020 program. Please check back for updates. Please contact Tara Mostatab at tmostatab@naw.org if you have any questions.

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 finance 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.

If you would like to learn more please contact Tara Mostatab at 202.263.4080 or tmostatab@naw.org.

Eligibility: Companies with $100M to $1B 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.

What Do Mergers and Acquisitions Look Like in a Post-Pandemic World?

At this session, you’ll learn how you can restrategize your M&A business plan to focus more on the longer-term so that your company can continue to get stronger.

Despite the bitter partisanship and continued gridlock, Congress is trying to come together to pass legislation to aid in reopening the country. So what is in store for Congress and the Administration for the rest of 2020 and where are things going after the 2020 election? Jade will share her insights and best guesses.

General Session & Discussion
Artificial Intelligence in Finance

Before Coronavirus, many distributors planned for major shifts in their finance processes which included automation and artificial intelligence.  In a post-pandemic world, these shifts were accelerated. Many distributors were forced to change their process so that they could accept payment in a world that was now completely digital. At this session, you’ll learn what AI tools and actions you can take to help your finance process be as efficient as possible in a post-pandemic world.

4:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Open Discussion
This is also an open forum to further discuss any item on the agenda or to bring up topics that are not on the agenda. Make sure to take notes during this session; you may find a perfect topic to suggest for the next NAW Roundtable scheduled for Spring 2021
