What Is NextGen?

NextGen is a movement. It’s about inspiring, developing and preparing emerging leaders in government. It’s about providing training and leadership opportunities for rising leaders in government. It’s about preparing new managers, supervisors and project leaders to excel in the government of the future. It’s about creating the absolute best next generation of government.

The NextGen Summit is the embodiment of what NextGen represents: inspiring government innovation and providing training and leadership opportunities for public servants. Since 2010, the two-day summit has inspired over 5,000 federal, state and local govies to become the leaders government needs.

2022 will be the 13th year GovLoop has hosted the NextGen Government Training Summit and this year we’re thrilled to announce some pretty big changes. We are excited to offer two dates for the virtual summit this year; both dates will be free to all attendees.
