ISSA Opens Korea Office
ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, has opened a new office in Seoul, South Korea with the focus of helping to advance the Korean cleaning industry via three core initiatives: education, certification, and localized member services.
ISSA held a grand opening ceremony on April 25 that included scores of industry professionals and government representatives. This marks the fifth international office ISSA has opened as part of its strategy to help change the way the world views cleaning by bringing global benefits, information, and resources to local members through an ever-expanding network of offices and events.
ISSA and the Korean Institute of Cleaning Science (KICS) jointly run the ISSA Korea office, led by local industry leader, Danni Lee. “I am so excited for this day to finally arrive because I have wanted to bring ISSA to Korea ever since I saw people dying during the local MERS outbreak in 2015,” said Lee. “My goal always has been to teach people how to prevent the spread of disease through proper cleaning and disinfecting and now we can introduce more advanced methods to the Korean industry because of ISSA’s local presence.”
