ASHRAE Region LeaDRS Program

(Leadership Development through Regional Support)

Share This

LeaDRS is an ASHRAE regional program that encourages the development of future regional and Society leaders. Similar to YEA’s Leadership U program, the LeaDRS program allows a Region to select an ASHRAE member to shadow their Director and Regional Chair (DRC) at an ASHRAE conference. The LeaDRS program is open to all ASHRAE members (it is not restricted to YEA members). The LeaDRS program is run, funded, and administered by each Region.

Please review the LeaDRS program document for a complete description of the program.

If you are interested in applying for your Region’s LeaDRS program, please contact your Region’s DRC directly:

Feedback from Previous LeaDRS Participants

“My experience as a LeaDRS participant was better than I anticipated and was much different than my experience as a student at a winter meeting. I attended multiple events that allowed me to see behind the curtain of ASHRAE and understand the inner workings of it all.”

“I was able to meet many people and left the conference with a better understanding of the DRC responsibilities. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who does not have a lot of exposure to ASHRAE on a Society level.”
