Digital Council (invite-only)

The Digital Council is a collaborative, networking group of digital leaders focused on ecommerce, mobile and innovation functions in retail.

This council is an elite group of senior-level experts from NRF retail member companies who discuss best practices and solutions to help advance their organizations, careers and the industry.

View current Digital Council members here.


The council meets quarterly via virtual calls and in-person meetings at key NRF events including Retail’s Big Show and NRF Nexus.


The NRF Digital Council is invite-only* and open to the most senior executive leading digital at the organization. Perspective members’ titles include chief digital officer, SVP or GM, or digital or ecommerce.

*Although this council is invite-only, we always encourage senior leaders to inquire.
