RACHP is a wonderful industry I am extremely passionate about, and one that I am proud to be a part of.  I bring over 19 years’ experience in the RACHP industry and have been recently named as one of the Top 50 Female Engineers.  It would be an honour to be elected to join the Board of Trustees; to have the opportunity to deepen my involvement in the work the IOR does and to bring my engineering experience to help shape the future for subsequent generations.

I am currently serving on the IOR’s WiRACHP steering committee which has been inspiring.  I have been able to see first-hand the impact that the IOR can have and believe that from within the Board, I can continue the IOR’s excellent hard work aimed at encouraging young people into the industry, at raising the profile of our profession, and at raising skills standard, so that those entering the industry, or those currently working within it may enjoy their career in RACHP and be as proud as I feel about it, and you probably feel too.   

I am currently a Sales and Applications Engineer at J&E Hall.  My career started in the Drawing Office but I quickly progressed into Sales and Applications, designing airside products.  During my apprenticeship I gained a wealth of hands-on experience, taking up a role in coil assembly at Searle.  I have further expanded my knowledge recently, moving into chilled water applications, where I manage turnkey solutions from design to delivery.

Supporter 2 Julie Murray MInstR

As Publisher of ACR & Heat Pumps Journal, I believe that my position, increased knowledge and extensive marketing activity over the past 16 years increasingly compliments the current IOR priorities.

  1. Improving membership engagement
  2. Effective membership marketing activities
  3. Improve the image and communications the IOR presents
  4. Raising IORs profile in the AC&HP area

It’s been mine and subsequently my teams’ motto that we are “Friends of industry”. It’s important to be supportive of individuals and companies through the good times and the bad.

My actions and support of events, including the launch of the not for profit ACR Trainee of the Year Awards (TOTY), now in its 10th year, helps demonstrate my interest and commitment to the industry, training and the IOR.

In addition to this I’m very active on several industry dinner committees, including:

  1. IOR London – Also long-standing sponsor of the Service Engineer Lifetime Achievement Award 
  2. IOR Scotland
  3. IOR Northern Region
  4. Promote and organize the BSRA Annual Dinner and Golf event
  5. The Annual FETA Lunch

All of which we market, sponsor and provide printed products, such as; menu/programs and invites.

Launching the Women in RACHP Group in conjunction with the IOR was very important to me and came swiftly off the back of the Women in ACR features we run in every issue of ACR Journal. This has led to the introduction of the Women in RACHP Award, presented at the National ACR & HP Awards every January.
