The Carpet Cleaners Institute of the Northwest was started by two groups of rug cleaners, from Washington and Oregon, which had been meeting informally for several years. In 1948 the Rug Cleaners Institute of the Northwest was formally established. Those early leaders were also instrumental in helping establish associations in California (now CFI) and associations in British Columbia and Alberta Canada. The Canadian groups later merged with the CCINW to make it the only cross-border regional trade association in our industry. Although the name hasn’t changed, today the CCINW is an association that represents firms in the business of cleaning and restoring many different types of interior building surfaces, with members in Alaska, Idaho and Montana as well as Oregon, Washington, BC and Alberta.
Members of the CCINW are some of the most highly trained and experienced individuals in our industry, and the CCINW is widely known as an organization that puts a high priority on ethical action. Directors know the right way to run a membership organization is to serve the member, and are valued participants in many industry organizations.
The CCINW has actively sought greater industry connection. We find that as much as we like our members we like the members of other associations as well. Supporting unification efforts since the early 90s, continuing through Connections and now the IICRCA, we think the greatest benefit to our members can come at the smallest cost if we work together.
