Social Responsibility

NAPO strongly believes in leveraging its unique position to give back to the community. We believe that without basic organizing and productivity skills, people can find it difficult or impossible to make important, positive shifts in their lives. Supporting the Public Awareness pillar of the NAPO mission, we aim to make a difference in every life we touch and to help others understand the benefits of being more organized and productive.




NAPOCares highlights the efforts of NAPO members, NAPO Chapters, and NAPO Business Partners as they reach out to share the three “T’s” of social responsibility: Time, Treasures, and Talents. NAPO will showcase ongoing efforts of its members through its social media channels, the NAPO Get Organized & Be Productive Blog, and the media.

GO Month

January is GO Month! This month-long campaign by NAPO promotes the benefits of working with an organizing or productivity professional, and highlights the educational opportunities for individuals looking to build a career in the profession. NAPO Professional Organizers and Productivity Consultants across the United States host events in their communities to empower individuals, families, and businesses to regain control over their surroundings, time, and possessions.

During January, visit NAPO's social media networks (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn), the Get Organized Blog for some helpful organizing hints, featured products, and an update of GO Month events.

The Barry Izsak/Glorya Schklair Conference Scholarship Fund

The Barry Izsak | Glorya Schklair Conference Scholarship Fund was established in 2012 to provide financial assistance to qualified NAPO members to attend NAPO's Annual Conference. Each funded conference registration provides a NAPO Professional Member access to the educational courses and professional skill development opportunities that are only available to conference attendees.

The NAPO Conference Scholarship Committee selects no fewer than two qualified scholarship recipients who will each receive a complimentary conference registration for the upcoming year. The scholarship will provide the recipient with complimentary full-conference registration plus basic hotel accommodation for two nights. Scholarship award recipients are still responsible for all transportation and other travel expenses related to attending the conference. Members can learn more on NAPO POINT.

This fund was endowed through the generosity of Barry Izsak, CPO and NAPO President from 2003 to 2007.

Applications for the NAPO2020 Annual Conference Scholarship Fund are now open. The deadline to apply is October 31, 2019.
