ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, and IEHA have announced IEHA members voted to approve the resolution for the two associations to merge.
IEHA is a 3,500-plus professional member organisation of management level individuals who direct housekeeping programs in commercial, industrial, and institutional facilities.
“We couldn’t be more excited about this merger and the benefits, resources, and power it will bring to our membership,” says IEHA President Michael Patterson. “Drawing on ISSA’s resources, we will be able to grow our membership and provide wider options for educational programs.”
Under the terms of the agreement, IEHA memberships will have access to global ISSA membership and benefits, including expanded educational opportunities, market exposure, networking opportunities, business tools and data, and other industry information.
“ISSA’s mission is to change the way the world views cleaning in all sectors of the industry,” says ISSA Executive Director John Barrett. “The merger of ISSA and IEHA is yet another move toward creating one strong, unified industry.”
The merger was voted on and approved by IEHA 25 May, 2017, to take effect 1 July, 2017.
