What Members Are Saying About the NextGen Program

"Politics determines a large part of what the future of trucking will look like. As NextGen members, we owe it to ourselves to become educated in this arena. Not only to help our own businesses flourish, but to learn how to have a voice in the process for the industry as a whole. If we want to survive (especially in California), we need to learn to speak up and become active. The NextGen Political Training is the tool kit to success, I would highly recommend it."

-Tara Amundson, Executive Admin of HR & AP, Minuteman Transport, Inc.

"The biggest insight the NextGen program has given me is knowing that the issues I face or the roadblocks that I encounter, are not only happening to me. It helps being able to talk to the others in the program when there is an obstacle to overcome. You are often presented with new ways to look at a situation because you have a team of like minded individuals around you that are experiencing similar struggles."
