The Greater Philadelphia Chapter was established in 1996 as an official chapter of the National Association of Professional Organizers® (NAPO®). NAPO-GPC is a non-profit professional association whose members include organizing and productivity consultants, trainers, speakers, authors, corporate associates, and product manufacturers for the organizing industry. The chapter serves the tri-state area of Eastern Pennsylvania, Central and Southern New Jersey, and Delaware.
At present there are over 70 members and the chapter continues to see steady growth in its membership. Organizers who have five or more years of proven experience in the business of organizing and have been a member of NAPO® in good standing for a minimum of one year, are eligible for membership in the Golden Circle, a special designation for veteran organizers. NAPO Professional Members who have been members for five or more years are recognized for their commitment to the profession by receiving the NAPO Golden Circle designation.
