Winding UP for the the BIG Showdown!

The office is buzzing…phones are ringing and the look on everyone’s face is pure concentration. Every time this year we feel the tension and excitement that comes with the opening day of the ISSA/INTERCLEAN® trade show. Kim Althoff, ISSA Director of Convention Services, once said it feels like our big wedding day! We all have worked hard planning, discussing, encouraging one another, and preparing for five glorious days of networking, sharing, and building new relationships that will carry on for a lifetime.  I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a marriage to me. Our spirit and determination for one another and our members is strong. Never failing and relentless in our pursuit to serve. 

To all of you, thank you for being a part of the ISSA family and I hope to meet as many as I can at ISSA/INTERCLEAN North America 2016 in Chicago. 

A toast…”To many more years!”
