Young Engineer’s in ASHRAE (YEA) is a group within ASHRAE for those 35 years old and under. The goal of YEA is to get young members of more involved with ASHRAE and provide resources to develop young members. For more information on YEA please visit ASHRAE YEA.

YEA has been a new addition to the Manitoba Chapter and is still forming its roots. The goal of YEA for the chapter is to build the chapter through young membership and increase the level of industry knowledge of the chapter’s young members. YEA events offer a more casual setting to the formal ASHRAE dinners and provide an opportunity for young members to meet their peers and become more familiar with ASHRAE.

More information will be provided as the events near. If you are interested in attending the events please register with the YEA Chair.

New for this year, the Manitoba Chapter is offering a mentorship program. The mentorship program is an opportunity for a young member to get paired up with more senior member, which they will meet with regularly to discuss openly about the industry. Young members will be able to gain a better understanding of the industry, learn about what they should be getting involved in and answer questions they may. More senior members can also benefit from the experience by learning what younger members value and what new things they bring to the industry.

At the first YEA event, a presentation will be given on mentorship and opportunity for members to sign up for the program. For those interested in more information please visit the ASHRAE Mentorship Webpage.
