NextGen Nation Membership

What does your path forward in government/public service look like?

You can’t take a back seat when it comes to your career in government. You need to be in the driver’s seat with clear directions to drive your career forward.

But sometimes it can be hard to navigate your career growth without a map or community to ask for directions.

This is where NextGen Nation comes in. By becoming a member of NextGen Nation, you’ll get the guidance, support and resources you need to shift your career into high gear.

The NextGen Nation membership is a community built on the needs of our vibrant and driven government community. It’s a member-based group created to help develop and empower you to be the best public servant you can be and to connect with other folks in gov on their development journeys.

The eight-month membership will include online trainings focused on leadership, development and career-advancement as well as exclusive access to the 10th Annual NextGen Government Training Summit taking place in Washington, D.C. next summer.

Remember, you’re in the driver’s seat. Where will you take your career this year? Enter your contact information and we'll follow up with more information and answer any questions you might have!
