January 21, 2009 – VANCOUVER, Wash. – Breaking with long-standing tradition, the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) intends to employ a full-time, paid president to oversee the organization and its operations. The president will report to the IICRC board of directors and its chairman.

“Over the years, it has become increasingly apparent to the board that running a rapidly growing organization like IICRC in an increasingly complex world is a demanding responsibility for a volunteer president who is also involved in her or his own business,” said Paul Pearce, the current IICRC president. “The board has decided to employ a full-time president to ensure that the full potential of IICRC is tapped, and that the organization continues to grow and provide the greatest value to its constituencies.”

The IICRC has named a Search Committee to find the best qualified person to lead the organization. The goal of the Committee is to present a candidate for IICRC board approval by mid-May 2009. Interested parties are invited to submit a confidential cover letter with salary requirements and resume to

According to Pearce, the new president will be responsible for administering an annual budget of approximately $4 million. The successful candidate will be capable of providing overall leadership to the organization; developing and implementing a long-range strategic plan, including growth outside current IICRC boundaries; and overseeing the management team as it carries out day-to-day operations. Relocation is not required and salary will be commensurate with experience.

The IICRC, a non-profit, ANSI-approved standard writing organization, was founded in 1972 to establish and monitor educational programs, and to set standards for inspectors and cleaners of residential and commercial flooring and cleaners and restorers of damaged buildings and their contents. It certifies approximately 46,000 individuals around the world. In addition to its headquarters in Vancouver, Washington, IICRC has offices in London, England; Sydney, Australia; and Tokyo, Japan.
