Tony Elkins, director of innovation for GateHouse Media, said his NEX GEN year with SNPA focused more on ideas than on personal development. He and his mentor often talked in the abstract and then focused on how to apply ideas and avoid repeating the mistakes of others.

Elkins enjoyed the NEX GEN program so much that he accepted an invitation to be a mentor to a participant in this year's class.

The year-long NEX GEN program offers newspaper professionals with executive potential the opportunity to develop their industry knowledge, analytical skills and aptitude for innovation.

Ultimately, she was named director of specialty content.
