This Regional program allows for the development of future Regional leaders through their shadowing of current DRCs and support from the Region. LeaDRS would be a program that is run, funded, and administered by each Region in order to develop incoming or new Regional leadership. As a participant in this program, the DRC would select a participant from the Region to shadow the DRC at a Society Winter or Annual conference. The participant’s travel expense would be covered by the Region as an investment in the development of their future leadership. While not specifically required, it is the intention of this program to prepare new YEA members their upcoming duties and expectations as a Regional leader through direct interaction with the DRC.


More info is attached as well.  The YRC (currently myself) will send out the application in the months leading to a conference and the attendee will be selected by the DRC. 


Leadership U

This program is similar to LeaDRS, but is run by society and involves selecting 4 total members to follow 4 society vice presidents.  Applications can be found on the ASHRAE website and will also be sent out by me when it comes around.  There’s Leadership U information in the attached as well. 


HVAC Design Essentials Training

This program isn’t run by YEA or anything, but YEA does offer a scholarship.  Five scholarships are awarded about every six months to be used for any of the courses in a 6 month period.  This program is roughly monthly and is a 3-5 day course going over the HVAC Design Essentials.  More information can be found here:
