Next Gen

PTDA is currently working to extend its network of Next Gen contacts (professionals age 40 and under) as part of its strategic effort to reach beyond the C-suite level and engage the emerging leaders of the power transmission/motion control (PT/MC) industry. PTDA offers Next Gen members the chance to network and develop leadership skills through educational and networking events, volunteer opportunities and social media tools.

To get involved in the Next Gen group or find out more about upcoming events, contact PTDA at ptda@ptda.org or +1.312.516.2100 and connect with over 110 PT/MC Next Gen leaders.

Educational & Networking Events

Leadership Development Conference & After Party

The Leadership Development Conference at the Spring Meetings helps future leaders develop the relationship-building skills they’ll need to forge business partnerships based on trust and communication. In addition, a Next Gen After Party gives conference attendees ages 40 and under the opportunity to network and exchange ideas in a casual setting.

Industry Summit Events for Next Gen Members

The PTDA Industry Summit typically features a session or workshop especially geared for those ages 40 and under. The Industry Summit also features a Next Gen After Party that gives young executives the chance to build their network of industry contacts in the 40 and under crowd.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering is a perfect way for Next Gen members to network and develop leadership skills while working with other PT/MC leaders to advance this distribution channel. PTDA has opportunities for Next Gen members to get involved on task forces and committees. More than 125 individuals volunteer in some capacity each year.

Get involved in a PTDA committee or task force by downloading and returning the committee interest form or contacting PTDA at ptda@ptda.org or +1.312.516.2100.

Social Media Tools

PTDA’s Next Gen members have access to the Next Gen LinkedIn group offering PTDA executives ages 40 and under a chance to connect with other industry Next Gen professionals in a virtual setting.
