SCRIA Merger Update

SCRIA Votes in Favour of Merger with ISSA The Australian-based Specialised Cleaning & Restoration Industry Association (SCRIA) has announced that its members have voted to enter an exciting and mutually beneficial merger with ISSA, the leading trade association for the global cleaning industry. Under the agreement terms, SCRIA members will retain their SCRIA memberships on a local level, but the benefits will expand to include ISSA membership benefits and the resource of a local management office within ISSA’s Oceania division, based in Sydney, Australia. ISSA member benefits available to SCRIA members after the merger include market exposure, networking opportunities, business tools and data, expanded training, and industry information. “Following an emergency general meeting on 1 June 2017, SCRIA is proud to announce this merger and become a division of ISSA,” said SCRIA president Gidon Kabaker. “This is the step forward that SCRIA and its members needed. The carpet care and restoration industry is going through a very challenging time now and we need to band together to bring about change towards a self-regulated industry,” he added. “I believe that our merger with ISSA will help us achieve that. SCRIA board members are committed to working closely with Kim Taranto, Manager of ISSA Oceania, and see this as a fantastic opportunity to contribute positively to the value our members receive and to the carpet and restoration industry.” SCRIA has already commissioned ISSA’s staff to provide administrative support, which started June 5. Transition of support from the former office to the ISSA Oceania office will take place over the next few weeks. […]
