Become a Professional Organizer
We are the Washington, DC metro area chapter of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO-WDC).
We develop the skills and visibility of professional organizers in the DC metro area through networking, education, and marketing. We host chapter meetings, neighborhood groups, book clubs, conferences, and community service projects. Through our NAPO-WDC chapter, our members learn, grow, connect, expand their businesses and give back to the community.
We also help to match customers with our certified, educated, and creative professional organizers and related vendors whose skill sets, services, and products complement one another. Customers can search for an organizer via our online directory and can refine their search by specialties, special populations, and industry.
