Joining NAPO/Upgrading to Professional Status:

To join NAPO or for a list of member types and benefits please go to our join page.

 

New members join as Provisional members. After completing the Professional Practices Coursework, members are upgraded to Professional status. There is no fee to upgrade to Professional status. 

The Professional Practices Coursework consists of:

 

PO-101: Fundamental Organizing and Productivity Principles
PO-102: Fundamental Organizing and Productivity Skills
PO-103: Ethics for Professional Organizers and Productivity Specialists


As stipulated in the current NAPO Bylaws, the only exception which will allow a member to join at Professional status rather than Provisional is if that member is already a CPO® (Certified Professional Organizer®).


The Professional Practices Coursework is offered periodically as live courses and are also available on-demand, which can be taken any time, at your own pace. For more information on the Professional Practices Coursework, please visit the Education Page.

This can be done by phone, fax, or mail. After 90 days, you can still rejoin as a Professional member but your original join date will change to the current date.
