Thinking about becoming a Professional Organizer? Learn from experience!

Learn more about the organizing profession by attending these dynamic workshops, where veteran organizers share their expertise through presentation and in-class exercises to help you learn the business aspects of organizing. These workshops are designed for new and prospective organizers and will introduce you to vital concepts that will help you start and grow your own company.

  • Becoming an Effective Professional Organizer – topics include business lifestyle, client relationships, ethics and safety considerations, professional associations and certification programs
  • Running a Successful Organizing Business – topics include business plan, marketing, insurance/tax considerations and client/engagement management tools

You can attend one or both workshops. We recommend taking Becoming an Effective Professional Organizer first – the class exercises included in this session will be useful in the business planning exercises included in Running a Successful Organizing Business.

We’ll answer all your questions and you’ll leave with reference materials, a book and online resource list, a list of government agencies and industry associations dedicated to helping the new small business owner, and – most importantly – a new sense of clarity and purpose.

Each New Organizer Workshop is led by two instructors representing different segments of the organizing industry. Instructors are experienced NAPO-New England members with at least 5 years of experience in the industry.
