ALEXANDRIA, Va.—As of this week, the NACS Executive Education sessions are still on track. NACS is actively monitoring the coronavirus outbreak with guidance from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and its educational partners.
“As a result of our ongoing dialogue with public health officials and schools regarding operations and precautions, there are no changes to the program at this time,” said Erin Pressley, NACS vice president of education and media. “The health, safety and well-being of the convenience retailing community remains our first priority, and any updates between now and the program will be communicated directly to attendees and posted here, as they occur.”
Up first is the Financial Leadership Program, endowed by Cash Depot, scheduled for July 12-17 at The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. This program is designed for leaders who want to increase their financial acumen to benefit their convenience store employers. The curriculum includes case studies for the convenience and fuel retailing industry using information from the NACS State of the Industry Report. This allows attendees to hone their skills through exercises that are relevant and applicable to their organization.
“With disruption happening all around us, we can no longer rely on innovative products, service and technology for our success. Our people are our greatest asset. Investing in their leadership will pay dividends for your company, and the convenience industry at large,” said Henry Armour, Ph.D., president and CEO of NACS.
