The view from the Editor’s Desk has been pretty inspiring in recent weeks thanks to the HVACR Leadership Awards.

I've had the opportunity to profile our award winners which has been an uplifting experience. A special edition e-newsletter profiling these winners will be published in coming weeks.

It is always a treat to talk to people who love what they do and are passionate about life. And, as we all know, positivity is infectious! This means the mood at the keyboard has been relatively upbeat as I compiled CCN's special report on the award presentation and the CCN Live speaker program 'Trade Talk' (look above to see yours truly pictured at the event).

When I am not mixing it with HVACR champions at CCN Live I have been involved in preliminary meetings for the Split Club, another exciting initiative covered in the October edition of the magazine.

The Split Club is a new resource for installers and contractors to help with day to day, on the job challenges. It provides business and HR tips, up-to-date regulatory information, install tricks and other real world advice. 

Membership to the Split Club and attendance at the events is free.

In other industry news, Victoria now has its very own pre-apprenticeship course for the RAC trade.

Yep, more good news. There is certainly plenty of positive activity right now which is a good sign of things to come as we work our way toward the new year and ARBS 2018.
