In 2018, the Association launched a new initiative to support the next generation of industry leaders by helping younger professionals expand their business networks and broaden their industry knowledge.

The programme is driven by a steering group made up of talented young staff from WPA member companies to drive the initiative. The WPA NextGen committee will enable the Association to establish meaningful relationships with upcoming industry professionals and promote much needed diversity within the industry.
