To further DBIA National’s Young Professionals initiative, the Mid-America Region recently formed a committee focused on the success of emerging design-build professionals in Missouri, Kansas, Iowa and Nebraska. The Next Gen Committee, co-chaired by Tom McVey of The Clark Enersen Partners and Laura Tyson of Shafer, Kline & Warren, will officially launch in 2018 with the following vision:
The mission of DBIA-MAR’s Next Gen is to connect, empower and grow future A/E/C leaders through continuing education, programming and networking that fulfills the pursuit of success in personal and professional endeavors.
• Connect: Bring next generation A/E/C leaders together to share industry knowledge and build a network of peers
• Empower: Provide educational opportunities to promote career advancement and leadership development
• Grow: Engage future leaders to grow DBIA MAR and the continued success of Next Gen members
Next Gen provides a seamless transition from student engagement to industry involvement. In addition to a deeply discounted membership ($75), Next Gen leaders (ages 35 and under) enjoy the discounted member rate for all DBIA conferences and educational programs.
