ASHRAE Region XI News

YEA Update from Gregory Jernstrom

ASHRAE Region XI Members –

I have some exciting announcements for YEA members this month! We have many upcoming opportunities both within the Region and the Society. Hopefully everyone has been following the YEA Connection newsletter, which is automatically sent to those age 35 years or younger.

Firstly, the Region XI LeaDRS application is now open for the 2017 conferences. This program is for a recipient to shadow our Region XI DRC (Director and Regional Chairman) at either the winter or annual conference. This year the winter conference will take place in Las Vegas from January 28 – February 1, and the annual conference will be in Long Beach, CA from June 24 – June 28. Airfare will be covered, as well as an additional $1000 for registration and lodging. Please see the application in the link below and make sure to get your application in by October 15!

Another opportunity to attend the conference is through the prestigious Leadership U program: This is an amazing networking and growth experience for those YEA members who want to know more about Society and shadow an ASHRAE Executive.

Fall 2016 YEA Leadership Weekend is also open and will occur on November 4-6 in Charlotte, NC. Attendance is capped at 30 attendees and registration is $400. If you’ve already attended, encourage your YEA Chapter Chair or active Chapter YEA members to attend! Learn more and register at

I encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities, get involved within your Chapter, network with your YEA peers, and grow personally and professionally with ASHRAE resources.

Gregory Jernstrom, P.E.
