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.
Show HighlightsThe NextGen conference is in its forth year and has become a popular program for our members. This past years 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.
Advantage Leadership Conference
September 14-18, 2020
A New Leadership Conference
We have a preliminary agenda for the 5 day virtual event. We’ve include the topics our members have asked about and believe would be most helpful to their businesses.
- Day 1: Sales
- Day 2: Credit
- Day 3: Purchasing
- Day 4: Operations
- Day 5: Management
We’re doing things a bit different this year, but instead of canceling the NextGen Conference we wanted to offer our members (not only NextGen students) a 5-day educational experience geared toward leadership and the challenges of running your businesses. We’re putting together five terrific panels from across the LBM industry to speak on five different topics each day. The conference will only be 60-90 minutes each morning, allowing you to fit it into your schedule. We’re going to miss the in-person camaraderie, but we’ll be back together soon and we know you’ll find value in this free event.
