This international trade association was initially approved by the IICRC executive committee and board of directors in 2010.
The new organization is a council of associations that represent the cleaning, restoration and inspection industries. It will provide education, legislative, networking and advocacy services to industry professionals, companies and supporting organizations involved in the inspection, cleaning and restoration industries. It will monitor and increase member awareness of government regulatory activities and serve as a voice on behalf of the industry.
The initial board of directors of the IICRCA will be made up of the current executive committee of the IICRC. The IICRCA’s first full board of directors will be elected by the association membership within the next 12 months.
All paid positions of the association will be selected through an open request for proposal process and chosen by a selection committee. Certified, professional candidates will be preferred.
Members will have the right to use the IICRCA logos. Additionally, the IICRCA, in association with its affiliate partners, will provide members new benefits including recognition, training, networking and economic incentives.
The association has committed to the launch of its first trade show for the fall of 2013.
