Hello All,

Hope you had a fantastic summer!  Now that we are all done our holidays, I would like to let you know about some of the YEA activities I have planned for this year.  First off, what is YEA?  YEA is Young Engineers in ASHRAE, although you do not have to be an engineer to qualify as a YEA member.  If you are an ASHRAE member 35 years old or younger (but not a student), then you belong in this group.  Last year, I stepped into the position of YEA chair/coordinator a little late in the year and was not really able to plan much, but this year I am going to make up for it.  The first event I have planned is a bowling night at the end of September.  I will be sending out an email to all of you some time in the next week or so with the details once I have them fully nailed down.  I am also working on setting up a mentorship program for some of our younger members.  I am looking for both mentors and mentees.  Mentors should have at least 10 years of industry experience and be members of ASHRAE.  Please contact me if you want to be involved and I will make sure that you get matched up based on what part of the HVAC industry you are in.  Also, since this is the time of year when most of you are dealing with recent university and tech school graduates, please encourage the younger people in your offices to get involved in ASHRAE.  I also strongly encourage everyone to attend as many meetings as possible this year as we have some exciting new topics that may interest you.
