IEHA to merge with ISSA following vote by members

01 June 2017

A vote by members of facility housekeeping organisation IEHA have voted to approve a resolution for a merger with worldwide cleaning association ISSA.

Based in the US, both have an international agenda and state that their memberships extend to countries around the world.

Following approval of the motion, the merger will be completed on 1 July.

The new arrangement will see IEHA members receiving access to global ISSA membership and benefits, said the statement.

This will include extended educational opportunities, market exposure, networking opportunities, business tools and date, along with further industry updates and information.

Stating that the ISSA agenda is to change views of cleaning in all areas of the industry, ISSA executive director John Barrett said the arrangement is "yet another move toward creating one strong, unified industry".

IEHA president Michael Patterson said: "We couldn't be more excited about this merger and the benefits, resources, and power it will bring to our membership.

"Drawing on ISSA's resources, we will be able to grow our membership and provide wider options for educational programmes."
