National Cleaning Week is just around the corner. The week-long event hosted by ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, takes place March 27 – April 2, 2022. National Cleaning Week provides an opportunity to recognize cleaning professionals, promote legislation that supports the industry, get involved in philanthropy, highlight the Value of Clean and more.
“The pandemic has demonstrated the essential role that cleaning professionals like custodians, housekeepers, and environmental service workers play in keeping people safe,” said ISSA Executive Director John Barrett. “Because cleanliness impacts every industry, everyone can get involved in celebrating the value and achievements of these essential workers and advocating for a cleaner and healthier world.”
National Cleaning Week includes:
- Advocacy – The ISSA Clean Advocacy Summit in conjunction with the Workplace Solutions Summit hosted by the Independent Office Products and Furniture Dealers Association (IOPFDA), a Division of ISSA, takes place March 30-31, 2021. The in-person event will allow participants to learn about public-policy issues impacting the future of the industry and meet with Congressional offices in Washington, D.C. to advocate for change.
- Education – During National Cleaning Week, ISSA is offering membership and resource discounts as well as scholarship and learning opportunities. There is also a chance to win a free all-access pass to ISSA Show North America 2022 in Chicago, October 10-13, 2022.
