HARDWARE RETAILING | February 2017 22 NRHA Hosts First-Ever Women's Leadership Roundtable N ineteen women, who are retailers, manufacturers, distributors and NRHA staff members, are implementing new business practices, improving their businesses and working together more closely after attending NRHA's first annual Women's Leadership Roundtable. On Dec. 7, these women from across the industry gathered in Chicago to discuss best practices, current issues and new ideas about leadership and the home improvement industry. The roundtable was the most recent addition to the association's successful roundtable series, joining seven other roundtables that NRHA hosts as part of its Retail Leadership Institute. NRHA roundtables are designed to bring together retailers from across affiliations, store types and locations to network and share ideas. However, the NRHA Women's Leadership Roundtable took this concept a step further, adding wholesaler and co-op executives and manufacturers to the group. "My greatest takeaway from the event was meeting new people in the industry who are facing the same problems and getting some great ideas on how to fix them or at least make them better," says Chrissy Busscher, roundtable attendee and owner of Picton Home Hardware. "I gained great ideas to implement in our store to improve our everyday operations." "It's not about women's issues. It's just women talking about running stores,"says Katie Robisch, roundtable attendee and market research analyst for The Farnsworth Group. "Where else can you get that much information from retailers, distributors and vendors in such a quick conversation?"
