NextGen Leadership Conference
Growth & Education
NextGen is focused on developing the LBM leaders of tomorrow. Our conference is packed with seminars and education that fosters career growth.
Students are part of the LBM community and NextGen offers the opportunity to connect with other members. The camaraderie is often cited as the highlight for students.
In-Depth Case Studies
Each conference includes an in-depth mill tour where you’ll see how other are innovating and meet with the owners and staff to understand how their role adds to the operation.
Fun & Relaxation
We always find time to relax and have fun. It might be a historical tour, a riverboat ride, cocktail party, whatever! It’s an opportunity to let loose and network.
The NextGen conference is in its fourth year and has become a popular program for our members. This past year’s event was a big success. We had two great Weyerhaeuser mill tours with in-depth reviews of the innovation and operations of the mills. The educational seminars included business training, sales and marketing and management. The students also gave rave reviews of the networking events and camaraderie developed during the conference.
