About the Billion Dollar CHRO Roundtable

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

Similar to other Billion Dollar Roundtables NAW has created for the CIO, CLO, CFO, Senior Operations, and Senior Sales executives, 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 human resource executives or CHROs.

The registration fee of $500 covers meetings costs of this event. Participants are expected to cover the cost of their hotel and travel. There are no additional fees to attend the meetings, which will last one day beginning with a reception and dinner the evening before.

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.
