IEHA Members Vote to Approve Merger With ISSA

IEHA, formerly International Executive Housekeepers Association, has announced that their members have voted to approve the resolution of a merge with ISSA. The member vote took place on May 25, and a merge will take effect on July 1.

“We couldn’t be more excited about this merger and the benefits, resources, and power it will bring to our membership,” says IEHA President Michael Patterson. “Drawing on ISSA’s resources, we will be able to grow our membership and provide wider options for educational programs.”

Under the terms of the agreement, IEHA memberships will have access to global ISSA membership and benefits, including expanded educational opportunities, market exposure, networking opportunities, business tools and data, and other industry information.

“ISSA’s mission is to change the way the world views cleaning in all sectors of the industry,” says ISSA Executive Director John Barrett. “The merger of ISSA and IEHA is yet another move toward creating one strong, unified industry.”

Other groups that have recently merged with ISSA include:
• Canadian Sanitation Supply Association (becomes ISSA Canada following merge) - April 2017
• The Association of Residential Cleaning Services International (ARCSI) - November 2016
• The National Cleaning Suppliers Association (NCSA) - August 2016
