“What I like about the group is that we set the agenda, so it is meaningful to us, and we get high quality participation from the members and outside experts we bring in to address specific topics. There is rarely a meeting I go to that I don’t leave with a number of new ideas and opportunities that have been of value to me and my organization. The meetings are quick, convenient and a manageable size which makes the best use of our limited time.”

Mark Joslin, Vice President and CFO, POOLCORP

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

Similar to other billion dollar roundtables NAW has created for the CIO, Operations, CHRO, and Chief Legal Officers this by invitation roundtable is composed of executives from billion dollar companies that meet in Chicago two times per year. This highly interactive group consists of the SENIOR-MOST financial executives or CFOs. The annual fee is $1,800 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 an alternate who can take the place of the CFO, should that person be unable to attend the scheduled meeting.

If you would like to learn more, please contact John Peter, Adam Isenberg or Tara Mostatab at 202.872.0885.

Eligibility: Companies with $1B+ in annual revenue.
The NAW Billion Dollar Roundtable is the only opportunity that provides networking and benchmarking exclusively with other top executives of non competing, like-sized Wholesale-Distribution companies.
