ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, and Grand View Media Group are pleased to announce that ISSA has acquired the assets of Cleaning & Maintenance Management magazine,, CM e-News Daily, and Cleaning Management Institute from Grand View Media Group, a wholly-owned subsidiary of EBSCO Industries, based in  Birmingham, Alabama.

“ISSA’s decision to acquire the CMM family closely supports association goals of strengthening the global cleaning community and changing the way the world views cleaning,” said ISSA Executive Director John Garfinkel. “A core principle at ISSA is to increase appreciation for cleaning as an investment in human health, the environment, and an improved bottom line. This acquisition serves to help us fulfill that promise.”

ISSA plans to run the four CMM programs separately from ISSA’s current products and services.
