NEXT: SRBX – #ownyourcommunity

NEXT: SRBX young professionals group was formed in 2014 to “bridge the gap” in the construction industry. Our mission is to build the relationships of young professionals from the building industry (architects, interior designers, developers, engineers, general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and other industry related professionals) through education and engagement with one another and senior professionals in the industry. NEXT hosts a number of events throughout the year to bring young professionals together.

NEXT was involved with the first Emerge Summit and is excited to continue our presence. SRBX and NEXT see tremendous value in Emerge and the goal of bringing young professionals together throughout the Sacramento Region. Emerge doesn’t just bring the construction industry young professionals together but everyone from education, banking, insurance, entrepreneurs and many more. Every young professional in the Sacramento Region should take part in the event as it will have a profound impact on our region’s young professionals.

NEXT will be hosting the breakout session at Emerge, “Your Role in Regional Planning and Development.” This session will focus primarily on the redevelopment of The Bridge District in West Sacramento and how young professionals can get involved today to #ownyourcommunity. We will have representatives from the development of the “Barn” – a future project slated for The Bridge District - as well as a representative from TBD Fest to discuss how this project will impact the future of the festival.

This is your chance to get involved with your community. We are bringing in representatives from the City of West Sacramento to discuss the options available to you to serve on planning commissions and getting involved with your local agencies to help your community grow. This is your time to #OwnIt. NEXT’s breakout session will be held in Stantec’s office only two blocks from the Crest Theater. Join us March 27th at the Crest Theater for the 2015 Emerge Summit!
