Next Gen Association Summit

next Gen

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, which is held annually in September in Reno, Nevada.

Applications for the 2016 summit are closed. The next application period will open in April 2017.

Discussion Topics

Participants engage in meaningful discussions to help shape an association community more inclusive of young professionals. Topics include:

  • What are the most pressing issues facing young professionals in their careers? 
  • How are young professionals engaging in associations? What are the trends in membership, volunteering, and participation? What are the barriers to engagement? 
  • What career development programs, products, and resources can associations provide that would be most valuable to young professionals?
  • How can ASAE and other associations help young professionals succeed?
