Are you ready to make a productive change in government? Work together with your peers and make an impact from within? Help retain excellent employees in the public sector?

Then welcome to NextGen Nation – it’s what we are all about!

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.

In order to keep all of our attendees, staff and speakers safe, we will host the NextGen Summit virtually on August 4-5, 2021. Be sure to check out more details on the format change here.
