What do people say about the Awards?

Chris Leech, Viessmann Commercial & Renewable Technologies
The 'Women in RACHP Award' is a first for the National ACR & Heat Pump Awards, which takes place in January 2017.
The ACR Journal has been at the forefront of promoting women in the industry, more notably for the Women in ACR section of the Journal. In addition, the ACR Journal is working with the IOR to promote the very popular Women in RACHP networking group.
The lack of diversity in the air conditioning and refrigeration industry is a widely acknowledged challenge. Research shows that businesses with a diverse mix of employees, in terms of gender, ethnicity and skills tend to be more successful because they are better connected to their clients' needs.
To highlight the excellent work of young people who have found their vocation in the plumbing and heating sector, the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering (CIPHE) has launched its very own Apprentice Awards for 2016.

• Plumbing (sponsored be BMA)
• Vulnerability (sponsored by CIPHE)
“March 17th was the date of our last Industrial Associate (IA) Development Group meeting, which was held at Thomas Dudley Ltd in Dudley in the West Midlands following their kind offer to provide a venue for the morning.
“Having run many of these catch-up and update sessions in the last couple of years, I was hopeful the turnout would be good but on the day, the number of representatives from IA members in attendance was approaching the highest we have ever had the pleasure to welcome.
“While Thomas Dudley Ltd is a fantastic central location to hold an event, I am pleased to say that the amplified audience for the last IA event was definitely due to judgement more than luck – not the other way round. I say this because, since Christmas, there has been a huge amount of work taking place at the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering to re-engage with its IA supporters and encourage participation in events like the quarterly Development Group meetings to ensure everyone’s voice is heard.
