JAX Chamber’s ImpactJAX launches NextUp JAX for young leaders

JAX Chamber’s young professional group, ImpactJAX has announced its rebranding as NextUp Jax. NextUp JAX is composed of three initiatives designed to activate different areas of professional development and encourage engagement among young leaders.

AccessJAX is a 10-week experiential leadership curriculum that is taught from March through May. It will include behind-the-scenes tours, programming with arts organizations and ongoing engagement with local executives and civic leaders.

InfluenceJAX is a 12-week leadership think tank that will connect emerging executives with area influencers and will include research-based trips. The goal of the initiative is to develop “Community Challenge” capstone projects.

InnovateJAX will start in 2023 to help young innovators and entrepreneurs identify trends, touchpoints and gaps within the entrepreneurial sector. This initiative will partner with the Venture Services team of JAXUSA.

The Hightower Emerging Leaders Fellowship with its intimate, signature roundtable discussions between emerging leaders and a lineup of Jacksonville’s current thought leaders will continue, as part of NextUp JAX. NextUp JAX will also introduce four new awards recognition programs and two signature events, including the ImpactJAX Hall of Fame Awards and the Jacksonville Volunteer Expo.

“Attracting and retaining top talent is critical for economic development and the chances of keeping young professionals in your city increase exponentially if they are involved in the community,” JAX Chamber President and CEO Daniel Davis said. “We believe the opportunities in NextUp JAX will strengthen our young professionals and our community.”
