Whether you're just starting out or have been in the industry for years, you've come to the right place to learn and network with your peers in Michigan! You will find that our members are a talented group who work together in a spirit of cooperation to share their vast body of knowledge. Please feel free to contact me with any questions!

REGULAR MEMBER

A Regular Member is a professional organizer who is helping clients in Michigan to get organized at home or at work. Please note that membership in our parent organization – NAPO – is a prerequisite for Regular Membership. You will be asked to supply your NAPO Member ID and Join Date when you apply.

We offer two levels of Regular Membership: Option 1 ($100 per year) and Option 2 ($80 per year). In both cases there is a one-time application fee of $25. The differences between the two levels are that Option 2 members pay $20/meeting to attend chapter meetings and other chapter events, and they cannot serve on our Board of Directors.

WELCOME:  CORPORATE ASSOCIATES

Our chapter is always interested in welcoming new Corporate Associate Members. To meet our criteria for membership, your company must be a supplier, distributor, or manufacturer of organizing-related goods or services. We're excited to learn about your company! Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions.

Best Wishes,
Jo Golda, Director of Corporate Associate Membership

CORPORATE ASSOCIATE MEMBER

Joining NAPO Michigan is an opportunity to network and partner with organizers, promote your product or services, and expand your knowledge of our industry.

The cost of Corporate Associate Membership is $200 per year. There is a one-time application fee of $25. Corporate Associate Membership is subject to application approval by our Board of Directors.
