VANCOUVER, Wash. – July 7, 2010 – Paul Pearce, the Chairman of the Institution of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), has been selected to serve on the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) 2010-2011 International Section Council. His one-year term begins August 21, 2010, during ASAE’s Annual Meeting and Exposition. Pearce will draw on his expertise and his experience from working with the IICRC to discuss emerging issues and opportunities for associations who wish to work effectively overseas.

“Paul has been a critical factor in elevating the IICRC to a global level, thanks to his international perspective,” said Patrick Winters, president of IICRC. “I have no doubt that his participation on this committee will benefit ASAE, and the IICRC will benefit from the insights of other ASAE committee members.”

Pearce is an IICRC master cleaner, restorer and instructor as well as the owner of Country House Carpet Care in the United Kingdom. He started his career in 1973 and has written numerous articles, spoken internationally and cleaned for many well known and respected clients. Pearce is a past president of the National Carpet Cleaners Association (NCAA) and the current technical director. He is also a past chairman of the British Cleaning Council.

“Members of ASAE’s International Section Council bring their own expertise as well as the experience of their organizations to the table to discuss emerging issues and opportunities for associations who wish to work effectively overseas. We are honored to include Paul and to draw from his perspective and experience with IICRC as we continue to build resources and community for association international practitioners,” added Megan Freedman, program director, international, at ASAE.

ASAE is the membership organization and voice of the association profession. ASAE has more than 22,000 association CEOs, staff professionals, industry partners and consultant members. As a member of the International Section Council, Pearce will serve on one or more committees for an appointed one-year term and may be re-appointed for up to a total of three years of service.
