YEA Leadership Weekend 2.0

YEA Leadership Weekend 2.0
Clearwater, Florida – February 8-10, 2019

YEA Leadership Weekend 2.0 (YLW 2.0) is designed to provide additional, more advanced resources to YLW alumni. For this continuation of YLW, we bring back Ralph Kison to facilitate and expand on the skills he taught at the existing YLW event. As YLW alumni, you’ve had the opportunity to use the resources and connections you gained at YLW to not only grow your professional careers, but develop your participation within ASHRAE. The purpose of YLW 2.0 is to continue that growth and development, and hopefully inspire even further leadership skills and aspirations!

This event is open to any current ASHRAE member who has previously attended a YEA Leadership Weekend event and has not already attended YLW 2.0. Attendance is limited to 20 people and registration will be filled on a first-come first-served basis. Registration will open on Monday, September 24, 2019 at 12:00pm/Noon Eastern. Please contact Rhiannon Masterson with any questions at [email protected] or 678-539-1178.

YEA Sponsorship Oportunity

This month YEA is sending a delegation of YEA members to the winter conference and we are looking for your support!

The future of our industry relies on young engineers to drive innovation and improve efficiency. The Connecticut chapter of ASHRAE has over 100 members that fall into the YEA category. These are the engineers that are going to usher the industry into a new era of sustainability. To quote ASHRAE past-President Tim Wentz, “Our ability to shape tomorrow is borne out of a willingness to adapt today.”

 The networking and educational opportunities make YEA attendance at the 2018 ASHRAE Winter Conference & AHR Expo a wise investment.
