WE WORK TOGETHER

We commissioned the NextGen Report in 2018 in order to answer one key question:

What does success look like for us in the next 10-15 years?

With the answers in hand, and many more questions in mind, we have sponsored multiple groups with statewide, regional, and local partners to pursue the priorities of the NextGen report.
