What differentiates CSPA from many other trade associations is its proven success in bringing diverse groups together to create beneficial policy with a strong scientific basis.
Scientific, legal, advocacy, research management and policy experts on the CSPA staff have successfully represented the growing household and institutional products industry for over 100 years. They are experienced and credentialed leaders in their fields with a depth of knowledge on the legislative, regulatory and commercial issues affecting all stages of the product supply chain. The CSPA attorneys, scientists and advocacy professionals who manage seven product divisions and three affiliate organizations are well respected by their counterparts at both regulatory agencies and on Capitol Hill.
Over 75 different member-based task groups and committees and a very active Board of Directors manage CSPA and direct its strategic focus. An array of training workshops, seminars, webinars and member conferences held throughout the year bring industry leaders, technical experts and key decision makers together to strategize about future challenges facing consumer packaged goods and institutional products companies. CSPA is widely recognized for its willingness to look “beyond the next quarter” at long-term sustainability issues surrounding the products it represents.
Immediately preceding the CSPA 2015 Mid-Year Meeting, CSPA’s Cleaning Products Division will conduct its latest Fundamentals Seminar on Monday, May 4, 2015 at the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile.

Specifically, topics will include surfactant types, detergent builders household and industrial formulations and green cleaning.
The Product Care training seminars are an opportunity for CSPA members to show how they can foster best practices through Product Care to maximize the safety and sustainability of their products and services. In addition, CSPA members who have committed to, or are interested in, becoming Product Care Stewards can learn firsthand how this voluntary stewardship initiative can assist their company’s efforts to promote the production, distribution and benefits of safe and effective formulated products.
