I leave in an hour or so to fly to Los Angeles to attend the National Study Group on Chronic Disorganization’s annual conference. I love this conference and have gone every year since I became an organizer.
The NSGCD provides an unparalleled learning opportunity for organizers who are keenly interested in working with chronically disorganized clients. Its conference always rocks (this is my sixth one). While I also love the NAPO conference, the NSGCD conference is more intimate and more focused.
I’ve long said that NSGCD members are the healers of the organizing community. You’d be hard-pressed to meet a more compassionate, patient group of people. And they’re fun too! I’m really looking forward to spending time with them.
In addition to learning a lot, I’ll be sitting for my peer review to receive my CPO-CD® (Certified Professional Organizer in Chronic Disorganization) credential. This hour-long interview with a panel of peers is the culmination of 21 months of study and training in NSGCD’s Level III certification program. I’ve learned so much in the process and, assuming I pass my peer review, will be very proud of this credential.
