"We are delighted to again welcome ARCP's members to ISSA/INTERCLEAN," said ISSA Executive Director John Garfinkel. "They not only are a group of highly professional business owners, but they also represent a great new market for our distributor and supply members."

Based in Meridian, Miss., the ARCP provides education and networking for residential cleaning contractors and professional maid services.

"Partnering with ISSA for the ISSA/INTERCLEAN show has been incredible for our association," said ARCP Founder Perry Phillips. "Last year's show in New Orleans was a great success, and we are looking forward to an even better show this year in Las Vegas."

In addition to the ISSA Facility Service Provider Educational Conference, beginning October 19, the ARCP will host an expanded 25 educational seminars, October 19-21, as well as a general membership meeting, networking events, and a reception.

"ARCP has experienced tremendous growth and has made much advancement in the last year," said Phillips. "We are committed to building partnerships and working with associations such as ISSA to promote the cleaning industry."

The ARCP estimates there are 18,000 residential cleaning companies in the United States that, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employ more than 375,000 workers.
