The National Cleaning Suppliers Association (NCSA) and ISSA, the leading trade association for the global cleaning industry, have announced an exciting and mutually beneficial merger between the two organisations.
Under the agreement terms, 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 finalised, NCSA members will have access to ISSA member benefits, including market exposure, networking opportunities, business tools and data, and industry information.
“Following its AGM on 4 August 2016, the NCSA is proud to announce that it was unanimously agreed by all members present to merge the NCSA with ISSA,” said NCSA president Stuart Nicol. “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.
“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,” Stuart added.
ISSA executive director John Barrett is equally excited about the partnership. “The merger with NCSA represents an exciting development in fulfilling ISSA’s mission to change the way the world views cleaning,” commented John. “We are delighted to partner with NCSA to serve the entire cleaning community of Oceania.”
