NextGenBaker (NGB) is dedicated to developing the future leadership of the wholesale baking industry and the American Bakers Association.

Formerly the ABA Executive Leadership Development Committee (ELDC), the Committee was renamed earlier this year to NextGenBaker to reflect a broader and redoubled effort to engage and energize the next generation of baking and allied industry leaders.

The announcement and a new logo were announced during the 2015 ABA Convention in Orlando at the All Membership Meeting during a special presentation that focused on what the next generation is seeking from a company in regards to professional development and what a company and the industry can do to attract these leaders. “We felt that a fresh new look was needed to better attract and gain the attention of the next generation of industry leaders,” said NextGenBaker Co-Chair Morgan Murphy of Mother Murphy’s Flavors.
