I don’t know about you, but I am excited about 2006. I am in the position to reach out to 40,000 readers and report on issues facing the housekeeping industry, whose mission affects thousands of commercial and institutional facility occupants and tenants. You influence the learning environment for millions of students. And your attention to detail and unending customer service helps guarantee repeat business. Hopefully, as a conduit for information that helps you do your job, I can contribute, in some way, to your success and effectiveness.

But, in order to continue providing answers to your industry questions, I need to hear from you. What are your thoughts on an article, comments to a news item, suggestions, industry concerns, success stories or problem areas? Armed with this information, Housekeeping Solutions can continue its commitment to providing pertinent information.

I am also happy to report that Housekeeping Solutions is part of something new for 2006. In January we launched the CleanLink E-mail News Update. Delivered weekly, this e-mail includes news items that directly relate to and impact your work. Whether it is a new regulation you need to be aware of, association news, or a success story you may be able to learn from, the compilation of news items will help keep you abreast of what is going on within the industry.
