ISSA Releases Its 2023-2024 Advocacy Fund Impact Report

ISSA has released the 2023-2024 ISSA Advocacy Fund Impact Report to recognize the association’s most recent government affairs accomplishments and kick off the fourth annual campaign to support the ISSA Advocacy Fund (IAF).

“This past year, IAF contributions assisted ISSA in getting the Essential Workers for Economic Advancement Act introduced in Congress and securing bipartisan support for this legislation to create a year-round, non-seasonal temporary worker program,” according to a press release. “Other IAF highlights this past year included increasing access to period products in seven states; recognition by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a 2023 Safer Choice Partner of the Year; and securing 26 federal, state, and municipal Cleaning Week proclamations as part of International Cleaning Week 2024.”

In 2020, ISSA created the IAF to build on the success of its government aff­airs and ensure that the association has the resources to successfully advocate and influence public policies on behalf of the full cleaning supply chain.

“We thank our 70-plus contributors for their generous support of the ISSA Advocacy Fund,” ISSA Director of Government Affairs John Nothdurft said. “Our advocacy success this past year wouldn’t have been possible without this support for our grassroots advocacy, lobbying, coalition building, and public relations efforts to allow the entire cleaning industry to thrive.”

In the coming year, ISSA Government Affairs will advocate for public policies that:

  • Address labor shortages in the cleaning industry;
  • Protect workers rather than using arbitrary square footage production caps;
  • Incentivize healthy and safe workplaces;
  • Ensure that regulations of cleaning products are based on science; and,
  • End period poverty.

“Contributions in any amount are welcome; benefits start at US$50. If 100 ISSA members contribute to the IAF now through August, ISSA will receive an additional $3,000 for the fund,” the released added. “IAF contributions are not tax-deductible and will not be used to support candidates for political office or political parties. We accept contributions from individuals, corporations, and political action committees in unlimited amounts.”
