CIO Council

The NRF CIO Council is a member group open exclusively to the most senior technology executive within NRF-member retail companies. The Council currently has more than 125 CIOs and CTOs as part of its membership, representing a broad cross-section of NRF’s large and medium-sized member companies. 

The Council meets in person 2-3 times/year, including during NRF’s Big Show conference every January and at the annual technology-focused NRFtech conference. These meetings provide unique opportunities for peer networking and engagement with industry experts and policy stakeholders. NRF also maintains an online discussion forum to facilitate CIO Council member networking and interaction on critical business challenges throughout the year. 

The CIO Council also provides strategic leadership in support of NRF’s other technology-focused member communities, including the IT Security Council, Technology Leadership Council, and Women in IT Committee.
