The Billings Chamber of Commerce has announced the formation of NextGen, a young professionals’ sector of the organization. NextGen will allow the Chamber to better serve millennials (age 21-39), foster relationships with them and connect them with the Chamber. The group will establish its own objectives, priorities and structure and work closely with the Chamber to connect millennials to other Chamber members and initiatives.

The NextGen group will begin through the efforts of an Executive Council and Steering Committee. The Executive Council was selected by the Billings Chamber of Commerce and consists of: Jessica Baldwin (Webgrain and Billings365.com), Brian Brown (First Interstate Bank), Colin Dow (St. Vincent Healthcare), Jeff Ewelt (ZooMontana), Nichole Mehling-Miles (Hilton Garden Inn) and Ciara Sian Hagadone (Wells Fargo).

Applicants were solicited for the steering committee and the following members were chosen by the executive council: Kris Eklund (Western Security Bank), Jason Harris (Radio Billings), Lee Humphrey (Edward Jones), Jonna Jones (Wendy's of Montana), Cassie LaGreca (Better to Gather Events), Mariah Litton (American Auto Body), Kelly McCandless (Billings Chamber/Visit Billings), Sylvia Noble (Elation), Heather Ohs (Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch Foundation), Patrick Parker (Sanderson Stewart), Angie Stiller (Farmers Insurance), and Angela Wong (Billings Clinic).

NextGen will begin accepting general members on July 1. Membership will be $75 for Chamber members and $100 for non-members. For information, call 245-4111 or email to jennifer@billingschamber.com.
