ISSA enters partnership with American Association of Cleaning Professionals
ISSA and the American Association for Cleaning Professionals jointly announced on Tuesday that the two organisations have entered into a partnership that will endeavour to better serve the owners and employees of small to midsize contract cleaning and restoration companies. The organisations will collaborate on content development, education, informational resources, membership sales and support, and co-produced events in the course of the partnership.
"ISSA is excited to team up with AACP so we can jointly provide education, networking, and business-growth resources to the important market segment of independent cleaning contractors," said ISSA executive director John Barrett.
"AACP's market understanding and member-benefits portfolio is an excellent complement to ISSA's global network of cleaning suppliers, distributors, facility managers, and commercial and residential cleaners.
''Welcoming AACP members and expertise into the ISSA community will undoubtedly increase the value of participation for all constituents."
AACP specifically serves contractors in the janitorial services, carpet cleaning, maid services, and fire/water restoration industries. AACP delivers education, marketing resources, group insurance benefits, supplies and equipment discounts, and more among its deep portfolio of member benefits.
In the words of founder Wayne Baxtrom (pictured), "AACP is honoured to partner with ISSA to deliver more value to our members and more opportunities for professional connections to our shared audience of cleaning contractors.
"Leveraging ISSA's tremendous experience, educational resources, and industry connections will enable AACP members to be more successful.
'Similarly, AACP looks forward to bringing forth the unique perspective of small to midsize contractors in ISSA's global community. Together we can help our members be more successful, which we believe to be our ultimate calling and measure of success."
The AACP was specifically formed to help cleaning-industry business experts of all sizes optimise their operations and maximise profit. Its four guiding principles in business are to deliver exceptional services, keep expenses as low as possible without compromising quality, to develop new business offerings, and to keep members fully informed about industry developments.
"The key focus for membership within the association helps businesses with many discounted services.
AACP is headquartered in Bridgeview, IL.
