What Is NAPO?
If you’ve heard me mention NAPO and are curious to know more about it, here’s your answer right from the NAPO site…
“NAPO is the National Association of Professional Organizers. We are a group of approximately 4,000 professional organizers dedicated to helping individuals and businesses bring order and efficient to their lives. Our vision is to have the World recognize the value of organizing and turn to NAPO as the leading organizing authority. Our mission is to develop, lead, and promote professional organizers and the organizing industry. In addition to serving professional organizers, we aim to help consumers and those interested in becoming professional organizers. We offer programs, information, and guidance for each of these groups.”
I’m a member of NAPO National as well as an active member in my local chapter here in San Francisco. I currently sit on the marketing committee and moderate their Instagram feed.
