WASHINGTON D.C. — The National Retail Federation's (NRF) Caucus of Retail Executive Women (CREW) will hold its inaugural meeting during a breakfast on Monday, Jan. 17 at 7:15 a.m. during NRF's 94th annual Convention and EXPO in New York City.
During the meeting, NRF Board members Dorrit Bern, chairman, president and CEO, Charming Shoppes, Inc.; Lisa Harper, chairman and CEO, Gymboree Corporation; and Marsha Everton, president and CEO, Pfaltzgraff Co., will speak to attendees. The remainder of the hour-long breakfast will be devoted to a roundtable discussion based on responses to an online survey in which female retail executives rated what they believed the CREW mission and top priorities should be for 2005.
"This is the first group of its kind designed only for the rising population of female retail executives," said NRF President and CEO Tracy Mullin. "CREW provides these incredible women with a forum to come together and learn from one another."
