Worldwide cleaning association ISSA has partnered with the American Association of Cleaning Professionals (AACP).
In a joint statement ISSA and AACP said the organisations will collaborate on content development, education, informational resources, membership sales and support, and co-produced events in the course of the partnership.
AACP specifically serves contractors in the janitorial services, carpet cleaning, maid services, and fire/water restoration industries.
“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 founder Wayne Baxtrom said: “AACP is honored 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 mid-size 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.”
