Professional Organizers Help ARC with Hands-On Advice 

The National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) sponsors a "Get Organized Month" ("GO Month") each year. Now in its fifth year, GO Month is dedicated to raising awareness of the benefits of getting organized and by a NAPO professional organizer. During GO Month -- usually held in January -- NAPO's dozens of chapters and thousands of members will hold public events throughout the country to help folks get organized.

The Richmond Chapter of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO)extended Go Month into February by volunteering their time and expertise at the Greater Richmond ARC's north Richmond headquarters on Westwood Avenue. The professional NAPO consultants focused on all areas of organization, from managing supplies and inventory, to organizing toys and games for children, to organizing paper files to prepare for scanning.

The event took place on Thursday, February 4 2010 from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm at the ARC. Ten local professional NAPO organizers from across Virginia participated, each with specific expertise in the field of organizing, including office organization, controlling paper and paper clutter and space organization. NAPO consultants also performed one-to-one consulting and answered staff questions about utilizing their space and time more efficiently.
