Our very own Kevin Wixom will be attending this spring! Stay tuned to for his experience! The Spring 2018 YEA Leadership Weekend will be held in Seattle, WA from March 23–25, 2018. This event will include segments on understanding your own personality as well as other types, leadership development for young professionals, communication techniques and ASHRAE leadership opportunities.

YEA Leadership Weekend is an opportunity for you—the future leaders of ASHRAE—to learn more about Society, develop soft skills and network with other young professionals. Over 600 YEA members have already taken advantage of this great opportunity…will you be next?


YEA Scholarship for HVAC Design Essentials Training

Presented by the ASHRAE Learning Institute, the HVAC Design Essentials Training allows attendees to gain the fundamentals and technical aspects to design, install and maintain HVAC systems.

To encourage attendance by young professional ASHRAE members, YEA offers attendance scholarships to the HVAC Design: Level I – Essentials training. The full cost of registration to Level I of this workshop will be covered by ASHRAE. Any additional costs, such as airfare or hotel, are not covered by this scholarship.


The next round of applications will open in May 2018.

Criteria: All applicants must be ASHRAE members and 35 years of age or younger as of July 1, 2018 (student members are not eligible). Applicants will be reviewed based on contribution to the industry, ASHRAE involvement and career goals.

Have you ever wondered what ASHRAE Officers do at the ASHRAE Winter & Annual Conferences? Here is your chance to find out! Through Leadership U, a handful of YEA members are selected for each conference to be matched up with Society Officers and participate in all of their events and board meetings, including social activities. Leadership U not only allows you to experience a conference like an Officer, but it is also a great opportunity to network and form connections with those active in ASHRAE.

If you have any questions about Leadership U or the application process, please contact Rhiannon Masterson at 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.
