To thrive in the future, the association community needs to develop and support the next generation of association leaders. At ASAE’s NextGen Association Summit, leading young association professionals and established thought leaders come together to focus on young professional perspectives in the association community.

The NextGen Association Summit is a competitively selected program for professionals under age 35 with demonstrated leadership potential. Approximately 25 young professionals are invited to participate in the program.

The 2018 NextGen Association Summit will be held September 26-28 in Columbus, Ohio.
