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.

Please show the contributors your appreciation by leaving comments and sharing their posts (or this one) on social media, using the hashtags #POBC and #2018highlights.

Thanks to everyone who shared their conference experiences!

I’m now accepting submissions for the first Professional Organizers Blog Carnival of 2019, when our topic will be New Year’s Resolutions. You may submit your post any time up to 7:00 PM Eastern time on Tuesday, January 16th.

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.

    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.
