FEATURE: You deserve an award

CCN Live


If you work in the climate control industry—you deserve an award.

That’s right it’s time to showcase your abilities and to promote the trade. Climate Control News (CCN) Magazine are looking for RAC contractors, engineers, suppliers, innovators, energy saving pioneers, and leaders of sustainability to nominate for a HVACR Leadership Award.

It’s easy to nominate and think about how good it will look on your resume or workplace.

There are plenty of categories to choose from including Contractor of the Year, which recognises sole traders/contractors or small business operators with both technical expertise and great customer service. This award is sponsored by Airefrig Australia and is a new category in the CCN Awards program.

Those who want to showcase their abilities as a tradie should submit a nomination for Tradie of the Year, another new category that is sponsored by Temperzone.

If you are under the age of 35, then maybe you are more suited to the Rising Star Award. This category, which is sponsored by ABB, recognises young champions of the HVACR industry and will go to both a male and female Rising Star.

Maybe you’re more of an innovator who has developed an innovative project, product or program that has made its mark on the industry. The Innovator of the Year Award is sponsored by Toshiba Air Conditioning.

One of the most popular categories in the Awards program is Woman of the Year in HVACR, which is sponsored by Daikin. This award recognises the successful career of a woman working in HVACR.

Another category that showcases achievement in sustainability, as well as reducing energy use, is the Leader in Energy Savings and Sustainability Award.

Of course the Award that recognises overall excellence in leadership, and will go to a person with a well established and long-standing HVACR career is the HVACR Leader of the Year Award.

This year’s guest judge who will support CCN in selecting a winner for each category is Peter Cashel, National Dealer and Commercial Manager at Fujitsu Australia.

Winners will be announced at CCN Live, a half-day event being held on Thursday 24 August at the Masonic Centre in Sydney. CCN Live will enable the industry will come together to announce a range of new initiatives to strengthen the HVACR trade through new training programs, regulations and licensing initiatives.This year’s theme for CCN Live, is ‘Trade Talk 2017–The Way Forward’. RACCA Australia and NSW President, Kevin O’Shea, will be speaking on vocational reforms.
