Last evening was the official relaunch party of the Cleaning & Support Services Association in the UK. Held in London in the shadow of St Paul’s Cathedral, it was an eagerly anticipated, sell-out event – and one made even more exciting because we’d all so missed the old CSSA, when it had joined forces with other associations that had made up the quickly defunct Building Futures Group and virtually disappeared from the radar.
The industry as a whole had been delighted when we heard late last year that a group led by ex-CSSA chairmen Douglas Cooke, John Findlater and others, was planning to resurrect the CSSA and last evening was a celebratory culmination of the efforts of everyone involved.
As well as learning about some important initiatives such as a new Cleaning Awards programme, those in attendance discovered that there would, once again, be a CSSA Luncheon at London’s Savoy Hotel – a fun social and networking annual event that we had all really missed over the past couple of years. The one scheduled for Summer 2017 marks the CSSA’s 50th Anniversary. Let’s hope there’ll be many more anniversaries and just as many CSSA Annual Luncheons!
You can read more about last evening’s event and the aims of the CSSA – as well as learn about the benefits of membership – below. You can also find out about a short-term special offer for potential new members, as well as how to enter the CSSA Annual Awards.
I for one am delighted that the CSSA is not only back on course but that it’s also adapted to the changing needs of those in the industry, in terms of what it’s offering its membership. Whenever I’m asked for advice about how to choose service providers, suppliers or indeed manufacturers, I always recommend looking for a company that’s a member of a reputable association which has strict terms of membership (i.e. not just a club that anyone can join). That way, one always has peace of mind…
