This year, we were fortunate to have the NAPO Conference in our own backyard. It sure made for an easy commute! A record number of NAPO-WDC chapter members attended, and we all enjoyed a few wonderful days of learning, networking and catching up with our far-away colleagues.
I always enjoy the NAPO conference and look forward to it every year. This year, we had many chapter members who attended for the first time and I wanted to hear from them. So I asked. . .
What surprised you most about conference?
“NAPO did a superb job of matching me with a conference buddy, someone of about the same age and level of experience, which greatly enhanced my enjoyment of the conference!”
Yellowbird Productivity Consulting
“What surprised and pleased me most at the conference was meeting so many organizers who have rich, accomplished professional backgrounds. I was impressed with the high level of intelligence and education of the people I met!”
I appreciated “how truly inspiring the keynote speakers were,” and “how friendly and warm each fellow organizer was.”
Gleason Organizing and Bookkeeping
“What surprised me most was the closing note speaker! Dan Thurmon juggled and unicycled during his entire presentation and closed the conference with a bang, which, considering my energy level by the end of day four, is pretty impressive. Even more memorable was one of his metaphors that has resonated with me ever since…In order to juggle multiple things, you must let go of one to catch the other.”
. . . and from one of our most active and accomplished chapter members. . .
“I’m a fan of NAPO Conference and think everyone should attend.” – “There are NAPO members who are serious about their business but don’t invest in the #1 value offered for education, networking, professional development and growth! You can’t afford it? I can’t afford not to.”
