Tom Yacobellis, IICRC S590 Consensus Body Chairman, said: "I want to thank the IICRC S590 Consensus Body for their dedication and persistence in developing the HVAC Assessment Standard. This standard represents a significant milestone, integrating multiple IICRC standards and the NADCA ACR Standard. The Consensus Body's commitment to excellence will undoubtedly elevate the industry. The S590 Consensus Body also recognizes the invaluable guidance provided by the IICRC Standards leadership team and the management staff in shepherding our committee to meet strict ANSI requirements."

Brandon Burton, IICRC Standards Chairman, said: "This entirely new Standard provides the industry an accepted Standard of Care that reflects what is current and prudent in the field of HVAC System Assessment following Water, Fire or Mold Damage. I commend Mr. Yacobellis and the current IICRC S590 Consensus Body on the countless hours and effort they have volunteered to this new Standard, and to their ongoing commitment to our industry and its stakeholders."

Registration Now Open for 2024 ISSA Clean Advocacy Summit and Fly-In

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Registration Now Open for 2024 ISSA Clean Advocacy Summit and Fly-In

Las Vegas, Nevada – December 7, 2023 – Registration is now open for the 2024 ISSA Clean Advocacy Summit, which will occur on April 10-11 in Washington, DC. The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification is a co-host for this years premier Capitol Hill fly-in event for the cleaning industry, alongside ISSA and INDA, the Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry.

On the first day of this signature advocacy event, participants will get the “inside scoop” on the key public-policy issues facing their business and industry, including labor and supply-chain challenges, cleaning-product regulations, promoting healthy workplaces, ending period poverty, and more. They also will receive training on how to be an effective Advocate for Clean, get an insider perspective on the 2024 elections, and network with leaders from across the cleaning industry. On the second day, participants will apply their new knowledge and skills by heading to Capitol Hill to meet with their congressional delegation to advance the industry.

“It is vitally important that our congressional leaders are aware of the importance of the cleaning industry. The Clean Advocacy Summit provides the opportunity to meet with our federal representatives, form relationships, and discuss with them the problems and situations we face on a daily basis and the policy initiatives we believe can solve those issues,” said IICRC Director of Government Relations Robbie Bradshaw.

In 2023, the summit brought 78 attendees from 21 states, who visited nearly 90 congressional offices on Capitol Hill to advance the legislative priorities for the cleaning industry.

The 2024 summit will take place at the brand-new Royal Sonesta Washington, DC Capitol Hill hotel, which is walking distance to the U.S. Capitol. Attendance will include 100+ industry leaders representing a cross section of the cleaning industry from manufacturers to distributors to cleaning-service professionals.

“The IICRC is excited to be a co-host of the ISSA’s Clean Advocacy Summit in 2024. We hope to see IICRC registrants and certified firms in attendance and look forward to advocating alongside industry stakeholders in Washington, DC,” said IICRC Chairman and President Carey Vermeulen.

For any questions regarding the 2024 ISSA Clean Advocacy Summit, please contact the IICRC’s Director of Government Relations, Robbie Bradshaw.
