Off to organizers' heaven!

21 April 2010 | Comments [0] »

I’m leaving this morning for Columbus, Ohio, to attend the annual conference of the National Association of Professional Organizers. This will be my fifth NAPO conference in a row and I’m as excited as ever. There will be hundreds of smart, friendly, interesting organizers there to talk with. There’s an expo of organizing products (be still my heart), there are amazing educational sessions. The chance to see old friends and make new ones.

I don’t like to brag, truly, but I’m really proud of some credentials I’ve attained recently and I want to share. I’m in the process of updating my website, and the new credentials will be a permanent fixture there, but in the meantime, I’ll post it here.
