I will be attending the Cleaning Industry Research Institute (CIRI) 2011 Science Symposium next week (April 27-29, 2011) in Atlanta, Georgia, The Symposium is entitled: “The Future of Clean and The Future of Green: Are They Mutually Supportive or Mutually Exclusive?”
CIRI was an idea first shared by several visionary pioneers before about 50 of the cleaning industry’s leading members followed suit. Shortly thereafter CIRI became the only independent and impartial institute involved in cleaning and maintenance research. Its purpose was to improve indoor environmental quality (IEQ) for all buildings and facility types. Today CIRI is a 501.c.3 not-for-profit scientific, educational and research institute recognized for its groundbreaking cleaning science and research programs. Since its inception CIRI has sponsored unbiased technical research. This has allowed it to uphold the best interests of the commercial and professional cleaning industries while improving the public’s quality of life. The Institute is not meant to replace existing trade organizations or associations. Rather it prides itself on working together with leading industry groups, such as ARCSI, ASHES, BSCAI, CRI, CSPA, CSSA, IEHA, IICRC, ISSA, LMCCA, RIA and SDA.
The Symposium is a great opportunity to inject some “real world, in the field experiences about the green movement” into the dialogue. CIRI wants science to be more important than politically correct banter from people who have never cleaned a commercial building. Some of the panels they will be having will be discussing the following questions:
I would be interested in your comments and feedback so he can make sure they are represented at this conference. There will be opportunities for questions and comments. You can either respond to this post or email your thoughts to email@example.com.
In addition, Doyle will be posting updates live from the Symposium here on Cleanwiki and at the Interlink Supply Facebook page. Keep an eye out for them.
