ACG San Diego NextGen Monthly Recap

September 2020

  • NextGen hosted a virtual beer tasting featuring Harland Brewing's Director of Brewery Operations, Nick Marron, shared Harland's story with us as well as how these beers came to life while we tasted 4 of Harland's current selection. Such a cool event and we learned so much! From kids to dogs to spouses, we saw it all on the virtual platform and it was a very welcome change of pace.

May 2020

  • NextGen has gone VIRTUAL!
  • NextGeners met with Craig Benedetto of California Strategies and Dr. Brenner of UC San Diego Health Sciences to discuss ‘Returning to Work’! Both guests provided perspectives and predictions on how San Diego will return to work including when, how, and what requirements will be imposed on businesses. Participants were able to ask questions and get an insider look at how the County officials are basing their decisions.

January 2020

  • NextGen’s kick off January event was a Lunch & Learn!
  • NextGeners learned about the San Diego Regional EDC’s ‘San Diego Life. Changing.’ Initiative and all the free tools created to help businesses recruit and keep talent! The research that went into the initiative is vast and so informative. There is so much for San Diego to be proud of.
