YEA Leadership Weekend 2.0

YEA Leadership Weekend 2.0
Palm Springs, CA – May 1-3, 2020

YEA Leadership Weekend 2.0 (YLW 2.0) is designed to provide additional, more advanced resources to YLW alumni. For this continuation of YLW, we bring back Ralph Kison to facilitate and expand on the skills he taught at the existing YLW event. As YLW alumni, you’ve had the opportunity to use the resources and connections you gained at YLW to not only grow your professional careers, but develop your participation within ASHRAE. The purpose of YLW 2.0 is to continue that growth and development, and hopefully inspire even further leadership skills and aspirations!


The next YLW 2.0 event will be held May 1-3, 2020 in Palm Springs, CA. Registration is $600 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.

This event is open to any current ASHRAE member who has previously attended a YEA Leadership Weekend event and has not already attended YLW 2.0. Attendance is limited to 20 people and registration will be filled on a first-come first-served basis. Registration will open on Friday, November 15, 2019 at 12:00pm/Noon Eastern.
