It’s been two and a half years since I dived into the HVAC world and became the business management editor for The ACHR NEWS. There are a lot of things I love about my job, but if I had to name the thing I liked most, it would be the people. And I’m talking about the warm and welcoming people in the industry that I get to meet and talk with everyday. The people I work with here at The NEWS are pretty great, too.

What about you? Do you work for a great employer? If so, now is the chance to show them some recognition because The NEWS is once again seeking nominations for its “Best Contractor to Work For” contest.

If your work environment encourages growth, opportunity, recognition, education, and a winning attitude for all employees, then show off your team by nominating your company in The NEWS’ 2016 Best Contractor to Work For contest.

To enter, visit and create an account. We’ve updated our contest form, so visitors will have to create a new account with the new system. Once you’ve signed up, simply fill out the form and click “submit.” Be sure to share why the contracting company you work for should be named the best around.

Four U.S. contractors from throughout the country will be chosen as winners. The deadline for contest entries is Nov. 23. Winners will be announced in The NEWS’ AHR Expo show issue, Jan. 30, 2017.
