The Next Committee was developed in 2013 to represent the next generation of young talent, up-and-coming executives, and the future leaders of the business product industry.
Next is the champion for the next generation, giving them voice within the business product industry. Next provides meaningful input to potential industry initiatives while engaging and preparing the future leaders of the industry. Next is the catalyst for collaboration within the industry, being the nucleus for interaction between dealers, suppliers, buying groups, and industry associations.
“Developing the next generation of leadership in our industry is of vital importance, particularly within the independent dealer community. From attracting and retaining young, sharp talent into the industry, to developing training, networking and best practice sharing programs for current young talent in the business, the Next Committee focuses on building real value for participants. Value for the businesses they represent, value that develops their careers in this incredible industry, and the kind of value that helps them grow into our leaders of the future – starting today,” comments Next Committee Steering Committee Chairperson, Kris Colt.
Exclusively for NEXT members, the Pay Your Way program is a point-based scholarship program to bring members of NEXT to EPIC
