CIRI tops fund raising goal

The Cleaning Industry Research Institute has exceeded its goal of $40,000 to fund the creation of the organization, with 12 companies and trade associations coming on board as founding sponsors to successfully underwrite the creation of the CIRI.

"With the generous contribution of these founding sponsors, we have exceeded our initial financial goal," stated Frank Wiley, CIRI interim executive director. "Not only did we get the funding necessary to get through the creation process, which will culminate with our second Steering Committee meeting in June, but we have almost all the money we need to allow us to launch CIRI to the industry at large in the fall."
