A former professional organizer, I’m now a web designer and Certified Digital Business Consultant. I love helping others succeed by sharing the knowledge and insight I’ve gained through marketing my own business for over 15 years! When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.

  1. I love seeing this list, and would add NERCPO – The Northeast Regional Conference for Professional Organizers, which will be November 3, 2018. I’m delighted to see we won’t be in conflict with POC this year!

  2. So excited to be at APPO next month! This will be my 5th conference (I missed in 2016 when I had a newborn)

    Wish I could make it to NAPO but don’t think it is going to work this year but hopefully next year.

  3. I’m attending my 5th APPO conference in March and my 6th NAPO conference in April. Looking forward to both conferences! And excited to be the host city for the NAPO conference!

  4. The Washington DC chapter of NAPO is hosting an event for Productivity & Organizing Professionals. Included in the day is the DC Book Launch of the next Julie Morgenstern book, Time to Parent.

  5. Thanks for sharing! These educational conferences are wonderful opportunities to network, learn something new and stay current in our fields!
    I love being a certified professional organizer. It shows dedication to my clients and the profession at large.

    Hope to see you at conference!

    PS. Like me, many of us are now offering virtual services! If you don’t have the opportunity to have one of us come help you, try virtual! 😉
