HARDWARE RETAILING | September 2016 16 NRHA News NRHA Announces First Women's Leadership Roundtable for December C reating a forum to share your voice, developing a network of peers and learning valuable skills and new ideas to make your business thrive is what NRHA wants to help you do. And that's exactly what the association will do when it kicks off its first Women's Leadership Roundtable at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare in Chicago on Wednesday, December 7. The Women's Leadership Roundtable is the latest addition to NRHA's successful roundtable series, joining the other seven roundtables the association already hosts as part of its Retail Leadership Institute. Women in leadership positions throughout the industry will come together to discuss best practices, current issues and new ideas about leadership and the industry. NRHA's roundtables are designed to bring together retailers across affiliations, store types and locations to discuss, network and share ideas. The NRHA Women's Leadership Roundtable will take this concept a step further, adding wholesaler/co-op executives and manufacturers to the group along with retailers. "As the number of female leaders in the industry continues to grow, we at NRHA feel is it important to create a forum for women to come together regardless of affiliation, brand or business type," says Allison DeWitt, NRHA director of member services. Much like NRHA's other roundtables, the program's discussion topics will be determined by an Agenda Planning Committee—a small group of roundtable attendees who volunteer to help set the agenda—and moderated by NRHA. Attendees to the roundtable will also be able to take part in the NRHA State of Independence Conference the next day, Thursday, December 8, which also takes place at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare. "Both programs are about bringing together various channel partners to learn from one another and provide a voice for retailers. We look forward to including this exciting and important discussion as a precursor to the conference," says Dan Tratensek, vice president of publishing at NRHA.
