It all started over a discussion in Dallas in 2003! A group of residential cleaning company owners came together with a vision — a way to provide community, education, and more through a new association for residential cleaners.
Perry Phillips, entrepreneur, and cleaning company owner, started the original association, the Association of Residential Cleaning Professionals (ARCP), in 2003. That same year, ARCP also formed an alliance with ISSA. The name was officially changed to the Association for Residential Cleaning Services International (ARCSI) in 2006.
ISSA, your global cleaning industry association, is entering its 100th year in 2023. Throughout the upcoming year, we will be celebrating our anniversary by highlighting many of the people, products, and brands who helped us reach this important milestone, and those moving ISSA and the industry forward into the next hundred years. We are looking to you to help tell these stories.
Throughout the year, we are going to share more about ARCSI – how and why we were founded, where our journey has taken us, and where we are going. Share your story on our Facebook page.
