Professional Organizers are becoming more popular as evidenced by the growth in membership to NAPO
; the National Association of Professional Organizers which currently boasts over 4,000 members. In the Chicago land
area alone I have witnessed larger numbers of professional organizers attending the monthly Chicago NAPO
meetings and more companies and professional organizing contractors setting up shop here in the Midwest
. I believe this shows that the industry as a whole is gaining credibility do to the professional attitude many of these new businesses in a relatively
new industry bring to the profession of organizing. In Chicago I have experienced a number of positive
relationships with other professional organizers, providing valuable feedback to each other on how to improve our services to our clients. This professional exchange in information is helping to establish professional organizing as a valuable service to home owners and businesses in the Chicago land
area. And I believe the market place is responding by showing a higher demand for professional organizing services. Chicago businesses are inquiring and hiring more professional organizers to help them increase both productivity and employee moral, and more home owners are hiring professional organizers to help them clear the clutter and create a relaxing, efficient and pleasing home environment.
As the demand for services grows, NAPO
and the industry as a whole is responding by working to to solidify the integrity and value of professional organizing services. Certification programs, lectures and learning materials are being generated to help organizers hone our craft. And business advice in regards to marketing, accounting and legal is being sought out to better help professional organizers build reputable businesses.
I am encouraged that the industry is moving in a positive
I truly believe that our services are valuable and that our hard work not only helps our clients increase their productivity or satisfaction
with their spaces, but that we ultimately improve the overall quality of life for our clients.
