YEA Inspirational Leader Award

YEA Inspirational Leader Award


The YEA Inspirational Leader Award recognizes a Young Engineer in ASHRAE (YEA) member who has gone above and beyond to make considerable contributions to the industry and community. This award is inspired by the previous New Faces of Engineering award program that was managed by DiscoverE and was put on hiatus in 2017. The YEA Committee feels that this recognition should be continued to encourage YEA members to make a positive impact on their industry outside of their ASHRAE participation.
