After much anticipation, October is almost here.

It's the one month of the year when CCN comes to life. Readers get more than a glossy magazine or digital edition, they get to participate in CCN Live.

The weeks leading up to the event are always hectic. This year I have been particularly preoccupied with the HVACR Leadership Awards and the upcoming winners presentation in Melbourne (only weeks away).

While the focus of the event is on the award winners, the finalists are all incredibly deserving.

In the lead up to the event I have been busy with promotional posts on social media reminding everyone to buy their tickets to CCN Live 2018.

When it was time to add a few hashtags I came incredibly close to posting #Winning. But then remembered the word had been popularised by the likes of Hollywood actor, Charlie Sheen and US President, Donald Trump.

Suddenly #Winning didn't seem so fitting. I settled with #awards.

If you are one of the unlucky few unable to attend enjoy our special edition e-newsletter next week profiling the award finalists across all seven categories. It is an inspirational read and was a joy to put together.

But before we announce the winners, CCN Live participants will have the opportunity to take part in our open discussion on the future of the RAC trade.

The discussion will focus on specific workforce issues like training and upskilling as well as the need to overcome the invisibility problem that has plagued this industry. The latest news regarding the national training review will also be presented.

And now back to the champions of our trade. Tickets can still be purchased for CCN Live which will be held in Melbourne on October 11, 2018.
