The Fall 2022 YEA Leadership Weekend will be held (Delta Hotels Vancouver Downtown Suites) in Vancouver, Canada from November 4-6, 2022. Registration is $580 and includes hotel accommodations for Friday and Saturday, meals during the event (dinner on Friday, all meals on Saturday, and breakfast and lunch on Sunday), and all necessary materials and resources. Airfare and any ground transportation costs are not included. 

OPTIONAL TECHNICAL TOUR : We will be touring the Vancouver Convention Center. From the design of the double LEED® Platinum certified facility, the use of the latest green technologies to the adoption of green operating practices, the Vancouver Convention Centre is committed to being as environmentally sustainable as possible.

 Here are a few reasons why the facility is truly green by design.

  • The West building’s six-acre living roof – the largest in Canada and the largest non-industrial living roof in North America – features more than 400,000 indigenous plant and grasses.
  • The sophisticated black water treatment plant recycles grey and black water that goes back into the washrooms for toilet flushing and is used for rooftop irrigation during warmer weather.
  • The seawater heating and cooling system takes advantage of the adjacent seawater to produce cooling for the building during warmer months and heating in cooler months.

Registration for the tour is an additional $200 and includes a hotel room for the night of Thursday, November 3, 2022, breakfast on Friday, and the technical tour. If you sign up for the technical tour, additional information will be sent after you register.

“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.”
