What Is NextGen?

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The Billings Chamber of Commerce is announcing a new group, consisting of young professionals in the Billings community, called NextGen.

The purpose of NextGen is to connect, enhance and inspire Billings' young professionals to make a positive difference within the community.

ZooMontana Director and Co-Chair of NextGen group, Jeff Ewelt says that local businesses, like the zoo, play an important role in making our city succeed.

"Billings can benefit from a group like this because it's a lot of great young minds. Very active minds, very successful minds and minds of individuals that want to move Billings in the right direction for the sake of Billings and for the success of Billings. And I think that to be able to get some of these younger minds, and some of the better, fresh ideas out there, is beneficial to any town,” says Ewelt.

Ewelt says that the NextGen group hopes to inspire ideas that will make the younger generation want to make Billings their "forever home".

If you'd like to get involved with NextGen, contact the Billings Chamber, or ask for Jeff Ewelt at ZooMontana.
