Financial Executives Council (FEC)

The Financial Executives Council offers participation specifically to senior financial executives within NRF retail member companies who work with NRF to develop industry financial benchmarks and serve as advisors for industry advocacy efforts with the FASB, SEC, etc.

This council offers participants an exclusive opportunity to network and collaborate with industry experts to identify best practices, share information and identify emerging issues.

During meetings, the councils focus on educational content crafted in collaboration with experts from the Big 4 accounting firms (Deloitte, EY, KPMG, PwC) and council members willing to share their experience. In-person meetings are designed to allow attendees to earn CPE credit.

Meetings

The council convenes through virtual and in-person meetings, including NRF’s Retail’s Big Show held in New York City each January and a mid-summer networking dinner in Washington, D.C.
