In the spring of 2005, five area members of the National Association of Productivity & Organizing Professionals met for the first time and began discussing the possibility of creating a NAPO chapter in the area. They reached out to other NAPO members and in less than a year, officially became a Chapter in Formation. The members of this group included: Cindy Gunderson, Muffy Kaesberg, AJ Pfander and JoEllen Salkin. Muffy and JoEllen are still members of the Chapter today.
On January 27, 2007, NAPO North Coast Ohio became the 29th NAPO chapter in the nation. In May of the same year, the NAPO national president, Barry Izsak, attended a celebration to recognize this achievement.
Over the years, the membership has enjoyed networking opportunities, educational programming, and volunteering in the communities in which we serve. Even before the Chapter was official, members participated in a GO (Get Organized) Month project. They have continued this tradition every year by donating time to a local non-profit organization.
Today, the NAPO North Coast Ohio Chapter continues to grow and evolve with over 30 industry members and associate members who are dedicated to elevating the professional organizing industry.
