Young Engineers in ASHRAE (YEA)
What is YEA?
To ensure a bright future for ASHRAE and the industry, the Young Engineers in ASHRAE (YEA) Committee was developed to create programs and develop a path for our young professional members. Any current ASHRAE Affiliate, Associate or Member who is 35 years of age or younger is considered a YEA member, and automatically has a wide variety of programs, events, and opportunities at their fingertips!
What can YEA do for me?
- Professional growth and experience – In addition to your technical expertise, we want to be sure you have the tools you need to succeed. The YEA Leadership Weekend and YEA Leadership International events focus on professional development and allow you to interact with YEA members from around the world. If you want to find out how an association like ASHRAE operates, the Leadership U program gives you the chance to shadow an ASHRAE Vice President at one of our conferences.
- Technical contribution – Getting involved with ASHRAE Technical Committees (TCs) provides you the opportunity to help guide the future of our industry. Find a TC that focuses on your area of interest, get involved, and help to make a difference! You can find a list of all TCs and a sign-up form at ashare.org/TCs.
- Education and recognition – To make sure you’ve got the latest and greatest education, YEA offers a scholarship to every ASHRAE HVAC Design Essentials Training, or you can attend our annual YEA Technical Weekend. And since you’ve put in the hard work, why not be recognized for it and apply to be ASHRAE’s New Face of Engineering or be nominated for the YEA Award of Individual Excellence.
- Networking – It’s all about who you know, right?! Join us at our YEA Hospitality Suite at the ASHRAE Annual and Winter Conferences to meet fellow YEA members, as well as many ASHRAE leaders who stop by. And to keep you up to speed on all things YEA, we publish a quarterly YEA Connections e-newsletter that goes straight to your inbox.
