“The training I gained from YEA Leadership Weekend has been valuable in learning how to deal with different types of personality types. In addition, I have been able to plan new successful YEA events for my chapter through the ideas that I learned from other YEA members who attended this event.”

“Learning about ASHRAE at YEA Leadership Weekend has helped me move up within my Chapter and encouraged me to attend TC meetings at ASHRAE Conferences. In the office, the leadership portions of the weekend helped me take on more active roles dealing with clients and assisting co-workers.”

“By attending YEA Leadership Weekend, I was able to understand my personality profile, which has allowed me to work better in various work group situations and I am more understanding of other people.”
