IDFA and Cornell University have teamed up to offer an exciting program for the next generation of dairy leaders designed to enhance personal and professional networks, increase self-awareness and improve leadership skills in a way that can drive change within an organization. Now in its second year, the NextGEN Symposium will be held Oct. 6 – 8, 2015, once again at Cornell University. The program will feature professional and personal development seminars as well as exposure to some of the top subject matter experts in dairy.

The NextGEN Symposium is one of the many offerings for IDFA’s NextGEN Dairy Network, which was developed to engage the next generation of dairy leaders. The NextGEN Dairy Network helps professionals with fewer than 15 years of experience in the dairy industry connect with industry peers, enhance their careers and prepare for leadership opportunities within their companies and the industry. 

NextGEN provides opportunities for dairy professionals to grow, collaborate, network, solve problems and develop the skills necessary to hold leadership positions in their companies, as well as in IDFA and its constituent organizations.
