Government Affairs Advisory Committee

The ISSA Government Affairs Advisory Committee (GAAC) plays an advisory role in support of the development of ISSA’s advocacy strategy. The committee recommends actions to protect, support, and advance the specific interests of ISSA members and of the entire cleaning industry. This includes but is not limited to issue identification and prioritization; development and promulgation of policy positions; execution and/or support of advocacy activities; and help communicating our advocacy messages to employees, vendors, customers, and policymakers on matters of importance such as grassroots calls to action. The GAAC also is involved in advising on specific policy positions, advocacy actions, advocacy events, advocacy fundraising, and other government affairs-related items.
