Antimicrobial Workshop

The Thirteenth Antimicrobial Workshop is Being Rescheduled

To Our Community:

We have made the very difficult decision to RESCHEDULE the Thirteenth Antimicrobial Workshop, which was originally set for May 12-13 in Arlington, VA.  The ACC Center for Biocide Chemistries, the Household and Commercial Products Association, and ISSA—the Worldwide Association for the Cleaning Industry all struggled with this decision, but ultimately decided to reschedule our Workshop based on the recent advisory issued by the CDC, which recommends that meetings of 50 or more be canceled or rescheduled.

Please realize that we did not take this decision lightly. We understand it will inconvenience many.  That said, we firmly believe it was the right choice, and one that prioritizes the safety, health and wellness of our members, attendees and guests.

Reschedule Dates:  We are presently working on locations and alternate dates for the Antimicrobial Workshop.  As soon as these are set, we will share that information with our community.

Credit for Registration Fees:  For those individuals who have registered for the program, we will automatically provide you with a credit for your registration fees which can be applied to the rescheduled Antimicrobial Workshop. 

In addition, you may freely transfer your registration to another employee of your company for the rescheduled Workshop.  If you choose to transfer your registration, please send your request to Bill Balek, ISSA,

If you require a refund instead, please contact Bill Balek, ISSA,

Hotel Reservations:  For those who have reserved rooms at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City, you will need to contact the hotel directly to cancel your reservations.  The Hyatt may be contacted at 703.418.1234.  If you cancel your reservation within 72 hours of your arrival date, there will be no cancellation fees. 

Additional Information:  Contact Bill Balek, ISSA,, if you would like any additional information or assistance related to the Workshop.
