About the Large Company HR Roundtable

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

Similar to other Large Company Roundtables NAW has created for the Senior Technology, Senior Operations, CFO, and Senior Sales executives, this by-invitation roundtable is composed of executives from large companies that meet in Chicago two times per year. This highly interactive group consists of the SENIOR-MOST HR executives.

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 $100 million in annual revenue.
The NAW Large Company Roundtable is the only opportunity that provides networking and benchmarking with other top executives of non-competing, like-sized Wholesale-Distribution companies.
