RACCA Australia have published their sixth article in their Throwback Thursday–ARBS Series, with this week’s article focusing on ARBS 2008.
Our first RACCA dinner was a great success, thanks to the hard work of our events co-ordinator, Sian Hannan, the state and national RACCA committees, the support of sponsors, the ARBS committee and WorldSkills Australia who ran their national refrigeration competition medals ceremony on the night.
The attendance for the Dinner, held at Melbourne’s Convention Centre on 22 April was 180, including RACCA members and their partners from around the country, members of other associations and guests from right across the Australian HVAC&R industry, as well as manufacturer’s representatives from overseas.
RACCA Federal President, Kevin O’Shea, welcomed those present including the CEO of WorldSkills Australia, Mark Callaghan and members of other associations, including the board of Refrigerant Reclaim Australia and AREMA’s President, Bill Robertson.
“I’ll keep my words short because we are all looking forward to the announcement of the WorldSkills medalists. The success of the refrigeration category at the WorldSkills competition is now the benchmark for the other trades, given the success of its competitors at the international competition.
“I’d like to thank our sponsors, LU-VE’s Managing Director, John Mignano and Refrigerant Reclaim Australia’s CEO, Michael Bennett, and his board and the committee of ARBS for its grant in support of the evening.”
WorldSkills Australia CEO, Mark Callaghan, was invited to address those present by Kevin. “On behalf of WorldSkills Australia, we are again honoured to be part of ARBS and RACCA Australia’s industry night,” Callaghan said. “Both are extremely important events on the calendar and give us the opportunity to showcase the young champions in the refrigeration category in front of their peers. I’d like to congratulate all the competitors for dedication in reaching the national finals which deserves recognition in itself. They represent the best young refrigeration technicians in the country,” he said.
