POC Annual Conference 2004

Continuing education is vital to organizing and productivity consultants at all stages of their career.

Your commitment to professional development is clear to me based on your response to the conference list I posted last year, so I’ve listed below some learning opportunities for you to consider in the coming months.

As you can see, there are numerous conferences scheduled to take place in various locations. Some of those listed are specific to the organizing industry, while others are for related industries such as coaching or staging, or cover broader topics like affiliate marketing or social media.

This is definitely not a complete list, so please tell me about any others you know of in the comments section so I can add them.

I suggest that you make your plans as soon as possible, both to take advantage of any early bird discounts that may be offered, and to ensure you have the space clear in your schedule.

I recommend...

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.

    Wow, there is a lot of education going on out there. Thanks for this roundup, there are a few I hadn’t heard about. NERCPO will be in November of 2020 on a Saturday, but we don’t have a firm date yet. Will let you know as soon as I know:)

      NERCPO is a fabulous conference. As soon as you have the date secured, I’ll get it on my calendar. I’m not sure which other conferences I’ll attend this year. ICD’s Virtual Assembly will be on the list and I have not committed to going to others yet.

    • Avatar Janet Barclay on January 8, 2020 at 12:40 pm

      Please do, Seana! I can then add the details to this post.

    Thank you for putting these all in one place, Janet. I always know when NAPO is, but the dates of all of the others float out of my head. You may want to add the AADMM conference in, as the daily money managers are basically financial organizers with extra zest. 😉

    • Avatar Janet Barclay on January 9, 2020 at 3:30 pm

      Thanks for the tip, Julie – I’ve added it to the list.

    Thank you for putting this on one list Janet. Very helpful for planning. So many opportunities!
