2018 Conference Highlights - Professional Organizers Blog Carnival

The first Professional Organizers Blog Carnival of 2018 highlighted conferences my readers attended last year, so we’re going to wrap it up with one about this year’s conferences!

Here’s your chance to learn about the NAPO2018 Retreat, the Northeast Regional Conference for Professional Organizers (NERCPO), the Association of Professional Declutterers and Organizers (APDO) Conference, the Association of Russian Professional Organizers, the Professional Organizers in Canada (POC) Annual Conference, and the Mindfulness In America Summit.

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

Attend seminars, forums, conferences, summits and sessions where interesting topics about dream fulfillment and personal branding are prioritized themes and topics. Get exposed to better ways of doing things.' ~ Israelmore AyivorClick To Tweet

A former professional organizer, I’m now a Website Design and Care Specialist. 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.

    What a fun collection of conference posts! I enjoyed “attending” from afar through everyone’s excellent description and memories. Thank you for the opportunity to participate.

      Don’t they make you wish you were there? Then again, you WERE there for a few of them. 🙂

    I’m glad that my NAPO membership provides access to past NAPO conference sessions. I listen to them all year long!

      That’s a fantastic benefit, whether you were there and want to listen to the sessions you didn’t attend, give another listen to those you did, or if you weren’t able to go at all.
