    P.O. Fast Track Training

    Professional Organizer Training from 2 Veteran Organizers

    Wednesday, November 29, 2017. 1 pm - 2:30/45 pm EST

    Who: This is for the person who is ready to train to become a Professional Organizer, wanting to look into the possibility of becoming one, or has already begun their business but would like more training and would like to be a part of our network.

    What: A self-study of the manual with 3-one hour phone coaching sessions. (Free on-going coaching/mentoring for as long as you need/want it following the training.)

    Note: the conferencing site we use allows for more time, thus we may flex 15-30 min. beyond the hour.

    When: Register/pay deposit or in full, the manual will be mailed, and we’ll decide the phone coaching dates to accommodate your schedule and ours.

    Where: From the comfort of your home!

    Why: This is the ideal overview class that you need before considering other courses. Our training is to explore the profession of organizing, or to launch, or kick start your existing business. We'll help you enter the field of Professional Organizing and link you into our unique referral network.

    How: More information and how to sign up at our website,

    December Chapter Meeting - Ask the Golden Circle

    NAPO Golden Circle Logo

    Our December chapter meeting will be centered on sharing resources and ideas. Instead of having a presentation from an outside speaker, this month we'll draw upon our own collective expertise within the chapter, and in particular our Golden Circle Members, who have 5 or more years of organizing expertise.

    Betty Huotari will moderate this panel discussion, which will feature Molly Boren and Nia Spongberg, and asks that you send her questions or suggestions for topics by November 30. Questions from Chapter Members = Better Chapter Meeting!

    Please note that for a panel discussion to be a success everyone must come without judgment and with respect for their peers. This is a forum in which ~ for the richest outcomes ~ we should feel free to be open and vulnerable. Tremendous learning can take place when we do this and become receptive to new ideas! As a reminder, we have all pledged to honor and uphold the NAPO Code of Ethics.

    Meeting Cost

    Regular Chapter meetings are a benefit of membership for Option 1 Members and Corporate Associate Members.
    Guests and Option 2 Members pay $20 at the door. Ask for the Treasurer when you arrive.
