NAPL's Joe Truncale on their NexGenLeader Program

Published on March 12, 2010

Hi.  I'm Joe Truncale, President and CEO of NAPL.  I'd like to talk to you a little bit about a new initiative that NAPL has for our members called NextGen Leaders.

We've done extensive research and we find that there's a next generation of people coming up in the industry; many of these folks are already in place in businesses all over the country in our industry, but they really don't have an organized way to get together, to share experiences, to learn and grow, to develop their expertise, their business acumen and their leaderships that are going to be required for them to take the next step as our industry grows and changes.

So we've addressed that through a program called NextGen Leaders.  And the way the program works: it's sort of like a peer group for people that are at that generation so they can interact with others who have similar responsibilities in companies of all sizes, all throughout the country.  Specifically, there will be two workshops a year: one in the early spring, about this time of year and another in the fall in conjunction with the Graph Expo or Print Tradeshows.   Then there will be a session in July or mid-Summer where everyone will come together.

We'll have business acumen, things like finance, production, sales and marketing, all the different subject areas and then we'll also talk about some of the dynamics of growing into a leadership position inside the business.

We're very excited about it and we think the time is right for the NextGen Leaders program.  Watch for more coming soon.
