In December, many of us take time to reflect on our activities over the past year. Since professional conferences often stand out as some of the best parts of the year, this month I invited my readers to share the highlights of the events which they attended.

We’ll kick off this month’s Blog Carnival with posts about the Professional Organizers in Canada Conference, not just because I attended myself, but because I want to welcome our newest participant, Linda Vanderkolk who blogged about Organizing For A Conference.

The most blogged about conference was that put on by the Institute for Challenging Disorganization. Submissions included:

Linda SamuelsVibrancy & Success

Ellen DelapInstitute for Challenging Disorganization and Motivational Interviewing

Angela Esnouf – Why I flew half way around the world

Also blogging about the NAPO Conference were:

Julie BestryRock Stars, Heartthrobs, Brainiacs and Organizing Innovators: NAPO 2011 In a Nutshell

One participant chose to blog about another conference, not specific to the organizing industry:

As always, I encourage you to read the above posts as you reminisce about the conference(s) you attended and learn what you missed at those you did not.

Please leave a note to let us know what conferences you attended this year!

This is the last Professional Organizers Blog Carnival for 2011, but we’ve got a full slate of new topics lined up for next year. Be sure to mark your calendar so you don’t miss a single one!

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.
