British Interplanetary Society’s NextGen Network is looking for two new Co-Chairs!

The British Interplanetary Society is seeking two volunteers to join our NextGen Network (NGN) as Co-Chairs, leading the fantastic NGN Organising Team to grow the Network and work closely with the BIS. These roles offer rewarding and professional skill-building experience.

About the BIS NextGen Network

The NextGen Network was founded within the BIS in Spring 2021 with the mission to connect, inspire, and empower students and young professionals aged 18-35 in the space community. Through networking, events and career development support, the NextGen Network brings the next generation of the space community together.

Founded in 1933, the British Interplanetary Society is the world’s longest-established organisation devoted to supporting and promoting the exploration of space and astronautics. The BIS continues to be actively involved in education and outreach, with the NextGen Network providing an essential role in developing and connecting the next generation of space professionals.

This is an amazing opportunity for two dynamic individuals to, not only build and demonstrate their own leadership skills but to, support and develop the interests of many young professionals and enthusiasts, recognising and harnessing talent and connecting the NextGen members to the wider Space community, through the support of the BIS.
