Next Generation of GovernmentNext Generation of Government
What is NextGen?
The Next Generation of Government Training Summit began in 2010 and has enhanced the working and personal lives of 1,000+ Generation X and Y government employees. The sessions and workshops presented during the two day summit are jam packed with information focused on educating, inspiring and training emerging government leaders to further enhance their day-to-day career and the betterment of government overall.
Young Government Leaders, a professional organization of men and women employed by or for the government who are “young” in their service and/or “fresh” in their perspective, and GovLoop, an online knowledge hub for government employees whose mission is to help government do their jobs better, have continuously taken NextGen to new heights year after year. NextGen 2013 is no exception. This year, the summit will continue to tackle issues the next generation of civil servants is facing in their professional careers through hands-on training, conversational think-tanks and transformational leadership lessons.
How big is the summit?
Each year, NextGen has nearly doubled it’s attendance. Growing from 300 to 600 in the first three years, we are anticipating nearly 700 “new to government”, “growing in government” or “need advice on what’s next in government” leaders.
Who Should Attend?
The core composition of the summit is comprised of new and/or growing Generation X and Y leaders in government. There are specific sessions for everyone, from the greener newbies in government to those who have moved up the ranks and feel stagnant or unsure of their next step. If you feel lost in the trenches, need to learn the ropes of government, learn and enhance new skills, elevate your leadership knowledge or simply need to shake a negative habit, NextGen is the place for you.
When and where is the summit taking place?
2013 Next Generation of Government Training Summit is being held July 25-26 at the JW Marriott in Washington, DC.
Who can register?
Registration is on a first come first served basis and is open to emerging and seasoned leaders in government, academia, non-profit and government contractors. There is a cap on the number of government contractors, so register today if you are interested in obtaining one of these limited slots.
Does this Relate to Training I Need?
YES! NextGen is 100% focused on building and growing government leaders. We have mapped each NextGen training session to the OPM Senior Executive Service Executive Core Qualifications (Leading Change, Leading People, Results Driven, Business Acumen, Building Coalitions) and the underlying fundamental core competencies. Also, you may be able to draw additional connections between these competencies and your Individual Development Plan (IDP), if you have one. Demonstrating to your agency how NextGen will help you meet some of the targeted skills or development training as identified on your IDP can be a valuable justification.
Can I get CEUs for attending?
YES! For NextGen, we will be offering 13 Continuing Professional Education credits in Personal Development to those who attend the training in its entirety.
GovLoop is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors. State boards of accountancy have the final authority on the acceptance of individual courses for CPE credit.
