ISSA, the worldwide cleaning association, has announced that it has appointed new members to the 2021-22 ISSA Residential Cleaning Council.
The Council represents the residential cleaning industry through the Association of Residential Cleaning Services International (ARCSI), a Division of ISSA.
This year’s nominees include one Canadian-based industry leader: Jill Barclay, owner of Goldstar Cleaning Services, based in Fernie, B.C.
Barclay founded Goldstar in 2003 as a housekeeping service provider to a group of property management companies, and the company has since grown to become a full-service cleaning company offering residential and commercial cleaning services.
“Over the last year and a half, professional house cleaning operations have faced new challenges related to cleaning and disinfecting against COVID-19, building trust among customers, protecting their staff members, and more,” said ARCSI Program Manager Erin Lasch.
“We are excited to welcome new faces to the Residential Cleaning Council. They will be instrumental in delivering value to ARCSI members, expanding membership, and changing the way the world views cleaning.”
Joining Barclay as 2021-22 members are:
Jarelle Flibotte, Cleaning by JMF LLC, Barre, Vt.
Pete Glavas, Maid Brigade of Alexandria, Alexandria, Va.
Jeannie Henderson, Jeannie Cleaning, Portage, Mich.
Katherine Lill, Tidewater Cleaning Service, Easton, Md.
Bruce Vance, Town & Country Services, Pittsboro, N.C.
“In addition to welcoming our new council members, we would like to thank our outgoing council members for their continued dedication to the residential cleaning industry at a time when programming, services, and education were needed most to help business owners and employees through the pandemic,” said ISSA Executive Director John Barrett.
