NAPO-NY to Participate in National Get Organized Month This January

Members to share organizing tips and donate their time as the benefits of getting organized is stressed in events across metropolitan area.

New York, NY, January 26, 2010 --( Having trouble sticking to those New Year’s resolutions to become better organized? You are not alone. Although just about everyone seems to understand the benefits of being organized, it’s not always easy to figure out just where to start.

That’s why Get Organized Month (GO Month) was started. This is a national event sponsored by the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) each January that is designed to highlight the benefits of the association and working with NAPO’s professional organizers.

Many people use the start of a new year to think of ways in which they can improve their lives, and becoming more organized can help save time and money, increase productivity, enhance one’s quality of life, and reduce stress. In fact, in its most recent survey, NAPO found that 96 percent of respondents felt that they could save at least some time each day if they were more organized at home and that 91 percent felt they could be more efficient at work if they were better organized. Overall, 71 percent indicated their quality of life would improve with more organization.

Highlighting ways in which people can become more organized at home, work, and even school will be the focus of many personal GO Month projects members of NAPO-NY will be taking on in their respective communities this month. The activities that will be pursued are diverse and will range from sharing organizing tips in educational workshops to arranging community service events like a shred-a-thon to helping a favorite non profit re-organize its office. “We, as a chapter, welcome the opportunity to share our knowledge and expertise with local businesses and organizations as they begin to get organized and become more productive” stated Diana Soll, President of NAPO-NY.

NAPO-NY is the New York chapter of the National Association of Professional Organizers, the world’s premier non-profit professional community serving the interests and development of professional organizers. Founded in 1987, NAPO-NY is today over 100 members strong and boasts a diverse array of organizing consultants, speakers, trainers, authors, and manufacturers of organizing products who service individuals, families, and businesses throughout the New York area.
