Advocating For The Entire Cleaning Industry

To help advance the interests of the entire cleaning industry we utilize the following strategies:


Engage our members, policymakers, regulators, the grass roots, staff, and allies on priority issues in a targeted and effective way.


Educate our members, policymakers, ISSA staff, and the public about the value of cleaning, our industry, and the positive economic and health impact we have on the world.


Continually measure, evaluate, and report our advocacy efforts and successes back to our members to show the value of their membership.
