Did you know ASHRAE is the lead society for 2011 National Engineers Week?
Help open doors for one of your colleagues by nominating him or her for the 2011 New Faces of Engineering for ASHRAE. The recognition program, started by ASHRAE in 2003, is part of National Engineers Week, sponsored by the National Engineers Week Foundation, a coalition of engineering societies, major corporations and government agencies. Member societies nominate colleagues 30 years old and younger who have shown outstanding abilities and leadership. Engineers Week promotes New Faces to provide incentive to those in college and inspire even younger students to consider engineering careers. And ASHRAE is the lead society for 2011 National Engineers Week, so it is a really special year to be the ASHRAE New Face.
What a great way to recognize some of our young chapter leaders!
The top New Face from each society will be featured in a full page ad in USA Today during Engineers Week, February 20-26, 2011. Each photo will be captioned with the engineer's name, name of the engineering society providing the nominee, employer and a brief statement of that individual's accomplishments as they relate to the public welfare.

Engineers 30 years of age or younger as of December 31, 2010, are the focus of the recognition program.

Nominees must have a degree in engineering from a recognized U.S. college or university, or from an equivalent international educational institution. Degrees in engineering technology, science, computer science, and similar disciplines do not qualify, though a degree in computer engineering is acceptable.

Complete nominations including a photo must be submitted to ASHRAE by Monday, October 18, 2010. The nominations should try to tie at least one achievement to something the non-engineering community can appreciate.

Engineers Week is celebrated throughout the year, though the specific dates for Engineers Week 2010 are February 20-26, 2011. For more information on Engineers Week, visit:
