what is nexgen?

NexGen is a four-month leadership development program comprised of a series of educational events designed to enhance the leadership skills and knowledge of young, high-potential construction professionals.  NexGen prepares participants for leadership within their companies and ABC through education sessions, leadership training, peer-to-peer networking, mentorship, and community activities. 

Who Should Apply?

NexGen is ideal for young professionals in the commercial construction industry with at least some supervisory or project management experience.  Those with no supervisory or project management experience will be considered based on employer recommendation. 

How to Apply:

Applications are available here and are to be mailed to the ABC office before the January 17 deadline. 

How is Training Structured?

Monthly NexGen sessions will be held March through June. Sessions will be comprised of lunch with an industry or community leader, followed by leadership training led by a professional facilitator, networking and peer feedback.

Sessions will explore practical leadership themes that NexGen members can immediately put to work. Workshops will include case studies and self-assessment tools. Each session will include a briefing about ABC’s history, strategic plan, current leadership opportunities or legislative priorities.

NexGen participants will be encouraged to work closely with a mentor, and with their employers to enhance professional development throughout the program.
