Generation Next Board of Governors

NTEA Generation Next Board of Governors serve three-year terms. They attend three meetings per year: one on the first day of the Annual NTEA Convention in conjunction with The Work Truck Show (usually in March), one at NTEA's headquarters in June, and one on the Tuesday of the Truck Product Conference in Novi, Michigan, in September. They also participate in several conference calls during the year. The Board of Governors plan the Generation Next educational and networking activities at the Annual NTEA Convention. They also look for new means of networking and professional development for Generation Next members. One of their officers attends one NTEA Board of Trustees Meeting each year.
