The National Contract Cleaners Association (NCCA), Gauteng branch, held its second meeting for the year at the premises of Goscor Cleaning Equipment. Members were welcomed by NCCA President, Lennox Batchelor, who introduced Beverley Miller as the incoming national and Gauteng branch secretary who will also assist with the secretarial functions for the Limpopo and Border Kei branches until further notice.

The Gauteng branch currently has around 430 companies as members that employ just under 80,000 cleaners. The chairman extended an apology to supplier members on behalf of the NCCA pertaining to the website challenges currently being faced and reiterated that the matter was urgently being addressed. He added that more of the branch’s funds should be utilised to address benefits to supplier members and that additional regular supplier member meetings should be held.

The ISSA’s, Ayoub Khalaf, presented an overview of the Worldwide Cleaning Industry Association’s membership portal via an MS Teams session.

Miller reminded members that ISSA membership was a substantial benefit to all as a result of the NCCA being a member company registered with the ISSA.
