The semi-annual board of directors meeting of The Society of Cleaning and Restoration took place in Atlanta GA on November 5, 2011

The semi-annual board of directors meeting of The Society of Cleaning and Restoration took place in Atlanta GA on November 5, 2011. The meeting was lively, reviewing all that had taken place at the IICRC…oops, The Clean Trust. The topic of discussion was heightened by the fact that President Glenn had polled SCRT membership to get their opinion of the name change, the response to which was extremely negative.

The SCRT board felt that it was imperative that they voice the opinions of association members. All responses were sent to IICRC/TCT President Patrick Winters, along with a letter asking the IICRC/TCT to revisit and reverse the name change. SCRT will join in any movement started to reverse this decision.  Until this issue is resolved, the website will have The Clean Trust logo, but will state, “also known as Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC).”

Following the resignation of Tom Sherman, Cara Driscoll was elected as the new vice-president of membership. Appreciation was expressed to Tom for all of his great service, and we still look forward to working with him as president of the Ohio Chapter. Cara is on the management team at Abatement Technologies in Atlanta, and has been an SCRT board member since 2010.

The SCRT Board of Directors also approved the appointment of Debbie Glenn as the new administrator of SCRT following the retirement of Patti Savelle who has been acting administrator for the past four years. Savelle was the owner and manager of Bishop Clean Care, Inc. in Albany and Leesburg, GA for 30 years until 2010 when her son and daughter-in-law became third-generation owners of the business following her retirement. She has been a member of SCRT since 1978 and has served on the Board of Directors since 1999.  She will continue on the board as treasurer for the association.

Debbie Glenn is a 20-year veteran of the Abilene Texas Police Force as a youth investigator. She also works with her husband in their ServiceMaster cleaning and restoration business.

The new headquarters address for SCRT is now 4402 S Danville DR Abilene, TX 79606.  All phone numbers and e-mails remain the same.


The Pennsylvania Chapter of the SCRT

The PA Chapter of SCRT held their first chapter meeting on Oct. 27, 2011, at 105 N. Main St., Pleasant Gap, PA.  Chapter members present were Chapter President Doug Moerschbacher, Andrew Bower, and Paul Demers.

The Chapter president assigned Andrew Bower to the post of Chapter Vice President, and Paul Demers was designated Secretary and Treasurer.  Both Andrew and Paul accepted these positions. Bruce DeLoatch gave a presentation on the use of infrared cameras and how to interpret images, and members discussed plans to grow the chapter’s membership over the coming months. Members agreed to hold the next meeting sometime this month.
