Check it out: all registration and lodging expenses paid are by ASHRAE for Leadership Academy attendees. Interested? Contact our DRC, Jon Symko.
The Leadership Academy is a crash course designed to simplify the learning curve of all things ASHRAE. Over the course of two days, attendees will gain a better understanding of how ASHRAE Society functions and obtain useful and practical knowledge essential for honing leadership skills. The program will also include sharing tips and best practices that attendees can confidently take back to their Chapters for implementation. Attendees help shape the discussion, too! A significant part of the program will be based on hot topics and challenges that attendees have identified that they would like to see addressed.
Topics covered include:
Creating your elevator speech
Navigating the ASHRAE organizational structure
Understanding all the tools and resources available to help Chapters and their members succeed
Managing effective meetings so that Board meetings and Chapter meetings can run as smoothly as possible
Delegating to and motivating volunteers towards the ASHRAE mission
There is no charge for this program. Society will cover the expenses for up to two nights at the host hotel as well as the meals during the event. Airfare and other expenses will be up to the attendee, the Chapter, and/or the Region.
Registration is required for the Leadership Academy, but there's no charge for the program. Interested individuals must first contact their Chapter President, who will communicate with the Region's Director and Regional Chair (DRC). Regional leadership will determine which Chapter candidates will receive financial support for their participation. Learn more.
