||You’ve spent countless hours organizing YEA events for your ASHRAE chapter, ensuring the best possible happy hour/bowling/ping pong tournament that YEA members have ever seen.
||You’re known as “that YEA guy/gal” around the office because everyone knows that you are heavily involved in YEA, and if anyone doesn’t know about YEA they will after one conversation with you.
||You’ve considered altering your birth certificate to avoid turning 36.
If this sounds like you, it’s time to be recognized for your hard work and investment. The YEA Committee is excited to announce the first annual YEA Award of Individual Excellence. This award will be given to individuals who have promoted and participated in YEA at the chapter, regional and/or Society level and have made a profound difference in the involvement and number of YEA members.
