Since 1926, ACI has cooperated with schools, health agencies, industry and other organizations to get the job done. Over the years, our work has been possible because of our ability to build and sustain partnerships. Today, relationship building continues to be the backbone of ACI.
We have relationships with many organizations in other countries, including ABIPLA, ACCORD Australasia, AISE, JSDA, CCSPA, CANIPEC, CCIA, TSDA, CASIC, ALIADA and IHPCIA through INCPA, CEFIC and its Sector Groups (e.g., CESIO and APAG). ACI also is active in the U.S. arm of the International Chamber of Commerce and the Business and Industry Advisory Committee to the OECD, and chairs the International Product Policy Working Group of the U.S. Council for International Business. We collaborate with organizations in the U.S. including the Caregiver Action Network and Safe Kids Worldwide.
Here are some more of our partner organizations:
ACI has partnered with the American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences (AAFCS) for nearly 40 years, promoting hand hygiene and addressing public health concerns as they arise, such as the H1N1 pandemic.
The American Cleaning Institute is a long time supporter of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA). FCCLA is a nonprofit national career and technical student organization (CTSO) for young men/women in Family and Consumer Sciences education in public/private schools through grade 12. FCCLA is the only national CTSO with the family as its central focus. Since 1945, FCCLA members have been making a difference in their families, careers, and communities by addressing important personal, work, and societal issues. Visit www.fcclainc.org to learn more about their work.
The United States Congress established National Poison Prevention Week in 1961 (P.L. 87-319). Shortly thereafter, the Poison Prevention Week Council was organized to coordinate this annual event and promote poison prevention. Now more than 50 years later, the Council continues to use National Poison Prevention Week to highlight the dangers of poisonings and how to prevent them. ACI works with the Council to prevent poisonings every day and help ensure the safety of children and adults in homes and communities.
