ISSA and the National Cleaning Suppliers Association (NCSA) have announced that NCSA members have voted to merge with ISSA.
Under terms of the agreement, NCSA members will retain their NCSA memberships on a local level, but those memberships will expand to include global ISSA membership and benefits. Once the merger is finalized, NCSA members will have access to ISSA member benefits, including market exposure, networking opportunities, business tools and data and industry information.
“This will allow NCSA members to truly become part of the global cleaning industry and it will deliver real value to our members by providing them with access to ISSA’s education programs, trade shows, networking, certification guidelines, regulatory information and much more," said Stuart Nicol, president of NCSA. "NCSA board members are committed to working closely with ISSA staff and see this as a great opportunity to contribute to a positive change in our industry.”
ISSA's executive director, John Barrett, said, “The merger with NCSA represents an exciting development in fulfilling ISSA's mission to change the way the world views cleaning.”
