What is the Next Gen Council?



Formally known as the Young Building Professionals, the Next Gen Council is making great strides at the CDBIA. The Next Gen Council is a group of leaders that get together to come to become more advanced in their career. Next Gen will focus on professional educational opportunities, network with like-minded members who have grown up in the industry or are wanting to become emerging leaders in the building industry and our community.

Meetings are held the 4th Tuesday of every month from 5pm-7pm. These meetings are open to any employee of a member's company.
