What is YEA?

To ensure the future of the Society and the industry, ASHRAE is committed to advancing its programs and services for young members through helping them build their professional foundations.  With this in mind, ASHRAE created a committee called Young Engineers in ASHRAE (YEA), for members age 35 and younger!


What can YEA do for me?

We’re glad you asked! To help you develop your skills, grow as a professional and expand your network, the YEA Institute was created to offer a variety of YEA-focused education and networking programs tailored to your specific needs. Whether you’re learning at a conference, attending a leadership weekend or receiving one-on-one advice from a fellow ASHRAE member, the YEA Institute is the perfect opportunity for you to make the most of your time with YEA.


Connect with mentors…

Mentor programs are the most beneficial way to grow in your career and in your professional expertise. The YEA Mentoring Program – offered through your Florida West Coast Chapter – can help in several ways: • Provide career guidance • Help with fundamentals • Introduce you to other ASHRAE members • Guide your involvement in ASHRAE. Not only do mentors help introduce you to the Chapter at local meetings, but they can also help provide guidance on the best ways to participate on committees, grow into leadership roles, and volunteer for activities.
