The Colorado chapter of NAPO provides professional local networking and educational opportunities for Colorado members of national NAPO.
Develop business relationships with Associate Members whose businesses provide your clients with needed services such as junk hauling, house cleaning, media digitizing, garage and closet customizing. Meet organizers/productivity specialists who might need you to help them (or vice versa); and get to know organizers who you can refer when your skills or expertise aren't the right match for a client. Making great referrals is always good business.
Attend Chapter Meetings and find other Colorado organizers and productivity specialists who understand our profession and can be a sounding board or reality check for you. The chapter also has a Mentor Circle that meets six times a year and provides newer organizers with advice from people who've "seen it all" or know someone who can help you with challenges you face. It's also a great way for veteran organizers to meet new organizers who want to subcontract on large projects.
NAPO-Colorado provides educational programs that further your professional knowledge and abilities, and increase your business acumen. Many chapter meetings feature speakers whose presentations provide CEUs (Continuing Education Units) for CPO recertification.
Displaying and speaking about your professional association membership demonstrates to current and prospective clients that you are dedicated to your business and to furthering your education in the organizing and productivity profession.
