Soon, I will be heading to New Orleans to meet up with my organizing colleagues to hear some great speakers and take some of the best training in the industry at the 25th annual NAPO Conference. This year’s conference of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) will be on April 17-20th, 2013, and it’s one of the highlights of my year. It’s always great fun to meet up with friends and colleagues from all over the world.
In the past 5 years I’ve attended the NAPO conference in cities: Orlando, FL; Columbus, OH; San Diego, CA; Baltimore, MD and now it will be in New Orleans, LA. This year, because I am now a veteran conference attendee, I will be buddying up with two new organizers who will be attending the NAPO conference for the first time. I am looking forward to sharing best practices for getting the most out of conference.
This year’s opening keynote will be from David F. Tolin, PhD, ABPP, of the popular A&E TV series, Hoarders, and more recently, My Shopping Addiction on the Oxygen channel. Dr. Tolin will be opening the conference with his presentation, Unmask the Potential in Your Clients.
Peter Shankman, founder of Help a Reporter Out (HARO), will present the closing keynote, Unmask the Potential in Your Business: Reinventing the Art of Networking: Helping Mainstream Clients Get Unstuck: Lessons Learned from Clinical Psychology.
