YEA Leadership Weekend 2.0

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 YLW 2.0 event will be held in Phoenix, AZ from February 23–25, 2018. Registration is $500 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. Registration will open on Tuesday, October 17th at 11:00 am Eastern. Attendance is limited to 15 people and registration will be filled on a first-come first-served basis.


By registering for this event, you agree to the YLW 2.0 Policies.
