- THE MAGAZINE
The year will bring many new challenges to our organization as well as new opportunities to the cleaning and restoration professional who provides leadership and to those who desire and have the courage to become leaders in their respective fields. Let us extend a hand of gratitude to the many quiet soldiers who volunteer countless of hours on boards and in meeting rooms for the betterment of our industry. Thanks to the many IICRC volunteers across the country who invest countless hours of their own time writing, editing and searching for the right answer to the many questions which must be answered, all while raising the standards of our industry. These quiet soldiers are unpaid volunteers, spending their own time and money traveling to meet the demands of an industry that has taken the stance to police itself and raise its own bar ahead of government and bureaucratic regulations.
A sincere thank you to our valued suppliers in Colorado as well as those across our wonderful nation who have fused with the many cleaners and restoration firms to provide topnotch cleaning agents for the consumer. Thank you to the many educators in our field. They not only inspire and motivate, they introduce new trends and new sciences to an ever-changing industry.
