The NGen: Moving Nonprofit Leaders from Next to Now program enhances the visibility, leadership capacity and professional networks of mid-career professionals age 40 and under. 

The NGen Pre-Conference Program offers targeted workshops and networking opportunities for more than 120 emerging nonprofit and philanthropic leaders each year. This 1.5 day program complements the Independent Sector National Conference by strengthening the capacity of the sector's emerging leaders to contribute to addressing our society's most significant challenges now and over time.


The 2014 NGen Pre-Conference Program will take place in Seattle, November 15-16, 2014.

This premier networking and professional development program brings together both nonprofit and foundation leaders to connect with each other and develop their leadership skills and capacities. Participants will leave the conference:

  • having built relationships and a sense of community with their NGen peers and established sector leaders;
  • with new skills and concrete tools that can be immediately put to use;
  • more confident in their leadership abilities and capacities, regardless of position or title;
  • with personal and professional insights; and
  • equipped and inspired to continue connecting and collaborating with the NGen Community throughout the coming year.
“Of all the conferences I go to, many of which have an emphasis on aspects of next generation leadership, the IS conference sets itself apart with the thoughtfulness and quality of its NGen program." - Kevin Bolduc, vice president of assessment tools, The Center for Effective Philanthropy

"The NGen experience was eye-opening in many ways, I made connections with many people who are doing incredible things." - Christine Rhee, former philanthropy manager, American Express
