Next Gen, a commission of local government agencies composed of City Managers, Assistant City Managers, emerging leaders, representatives of workforce investment boards, and university career center staff from San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties.

Sponsored by the City/County Managers Associations of San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties.

Next Gen offers programs every year to enhance knowledge about local government agencies, career opportunities and skill advancement.


The Committee is chartered to identify programs to address the “retirement wave” of baby-boomer managers and professionals who are exiting local government in the region.
