RetailNext was recently named to the National Retail Federation’s Associate Member Council (AMC). The purpose of the AMC is to give a voice to all of NRF’s Associate Members, assist and extend NRF’s influence, help ensure that NRF consistently serves all segments and serve as a “think tank” for NRF.
“We are delighted to welcome RetailNext to the AMC. We selected RetailNext to be a member because of the company's strong retail analytics expertise. As retailers use data to create and deliver compelling shopping experiences, we felt it was important to augment our team with these skills.” said Susan Confort, Vice President of Industry Marketing for IBM and Chairman of NRF’s Associate Member Council.
On May 7-8th at the 78th Washington Leadership Conference, NRF, the AMC and more than 100 retailers headed to Capitol Hill to address critical issues with legislators and fight for retail's future.
