ARCSI also recognized the winners of its Professional Image Awards:
ARCSI was established in 2003 to assist residential cleaning service owners in starting, promoting, building, and expanding their businesses.
Under terms of the agreement, ARCSI members will retain their ARCSI memberships, but those memberships will expand to include global ISSA membership and benefits.
"The line between commercial and residential cleaning has grown closer in recent years, and the merger of ISSA and ARCSI is yet another move toward creating one strong, unified industry."
"It is my pleasure to inform you that the ARCSI Board of Directors has unanimously passed the attached resolution regarding the merger of ARCSI into ISSA and will be recommending to our membership that they approve the merger at our annual meeting on Oct.
I believe the merger of ISSA and ARCSI is yet another move toward creating one strong, unified, industry."
At the Convention, ARCSI will also celebrate its annual Professional Image Awards.
ARCSI's Cleaning Convention is held in conjunction with the ISSA Interclean, which brings together five co‐located events, 700‐plus global suppliers, and 16,000 industry leaders from 78 countries.
