Are you an organizing and productivity business with more than one employee or owner?

Multi-Person Business Discount - to include Professional & Provisional members 


Provisional Member 

Member Dues:$275 per year

Individuals engaged in the organizing and/or productivity profession join NAPO as Provisional Members.

After purchasing and completing the Professional Practices Coursework, Provisional Members advance to Professional Member status.  

The Professional Practices Coursework consists of:
• Fundamental Organizing and Productivity Principles ($180 for members)
• Fundamental Organizing and Productivity Skills ($180 for members)
• Ethics for Professional Organizers and Productivity Specialists (Free for members)

Provisional Members can also achieve savings by purchasing an educational bundle at the time that they join. The options are:

“Going Pro” Member Education Bundle
Includes all three Professional Practices classes.
Only $225. That’s a savings of $135!

“E-Learning Advantage” Member Education Bundle

Includes all three Professional Practices classes.
Includes all NAPO University classes
Includes all NAPO Conference recordings.
Only $799 - a savings of $3,056! 

On average, NAPO members complete the Professional Practices Coursework and are upgraded to Professional status within 4 months.

A Provisional Member enjoys many NAPO membership benefits.  However, the privileges of being listed in the Professional Organizer and Productivity Consultant Search Tool, joining NAPO Special Interest Groups, voting, and serving on the Board of Directors are reserved for our Professional Members. It is NAPO’s hope that our Provisional Members will quickly advance through their provisional status and move on to becoming Professional Members.
