IEHA 51st Conference And Convention Held In Conjunction With ISSA/INTERCLEAN

IEHA, A Division of ISSA, announced that registration is in full swing for its annual event, which is co-located with ISSA/INTERCLEAN North America 2017 and ISSA Convention, September 10–16, in Las Vegas. IEHA — formerly the International Executive Housekeepers Association — merged with ISSA July 1, 2017, and is embarking on its first year as part of the ISSA family.

“Now that the merger has been completed, our staff and members are beginning to enjoy the benefits, resources, and power of ISSA membership,” says IEHA Executive Director Michael Patterson. “We are excited about introducing members to expanded education and certification offerings, beginning with our annual convention this September.”

ISSA Executive Director John Barrett believes IEHA is a natural fit.

“ISSA's mission is to change the way the world views cleaning in all sectors of the industry,” he says. “We welcome IEHA to our family and look forward to helping their members with the resources they need.”
