Who We Are

Welcome to the Next Generation of Business Leaders - also known as NextGen! We provide opportunities for young professionals to engage and get involved in our community through professional development, civic outreach and social/business networking, all under the Fredericksburg Chamber of Commerce. Being involved in NextGen has given me the opportunity to meet so many unique and talented young adults in our community. Everyone has something to bring to the table, whether you are established in your career or just starting out. Grab a friend and join us for any of our events throughout the year. I look forward to meeting you!
