2017 Conference Highlights – Professional Organizers Blog Carnival

For the first Professional Organizers Blog Carnival of 2018, I invited my readers to submit posts about the conferences they attended during 2017.

I was delighted to read about the NAPO Annual Conference & Organizing Expo, the North East Regional Conference for Professional Organizers (NERCPO), the CT Conference on Hoarding, and Blogger Bash NYC (BBNYC).

Check out the following posts to learn more about these exciting events! It might help you decide which ones to attend in the future.

Please show the contributors your appreciation by leaving comments and sharing their posts (or this one) on social media, using the hashtag #POBC.

Thanks to everyone who shared their conference experiences!

I’m now accepting submissions for next month’s Professional Organizers Blog Carnival, when the topic will be Organizing Tools for Your Legacy. Our sponsor will be Hazel Thornton of Organized for Life, who defines “legacy” as follows:

A legacy is anything left behind when you die. It can be a gift of money or property left to someone in a will. It can be a body of wisdom captured in a published book, or the ongoing good deeds of a non-profit organization that you founded. It could be the wonderful warm memories of friendship and family that never die.

A legacy can also be the consequences of neglect. It could be a house full of clutter that no one knows what to do with. Or the lack of a will and a designated executor, leading to confusion and more money and time being spent on your estate than it is worth.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with! You have until 7 PM EST on Tuesday, February 20 to make your submission.

In the meantime, please leave a comment about the conferences you plan to attend this year!

A former professional organizer, I now eliminate stress for my clients by hosting, monitoring, and maintaining their WordPress sites so they don’t have to worry about security, downtime or performance issues. When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.
