Monthly meetings of the Washington, DC Metro Chapter of the National Association of Professional Organizers are designed to share organizing knowledge and resources among members, as well as offer an opportunity to network. Programs are varied to appeal to both seasoned and novice organizers.

The meetings are usually held the first Monday night of the month unless that date is a secular or religious holiday. The meetings may be rescheduled if National or local chapter events conflict with our regular schedule. In the event of inclement weather, we follow Montgomery or Fairfax County snow policy. Listen to the radio or TV for school closings.

Meetings begin at 6:30 p.m. with an “Ask the Expert” session, an informal gathering of new organizers who receive free advice on owning an organizing business from members of the Golden Circle, a prestigious designation within NAPO for experienced organizers. The chapter’s business meeting begins at 7:00 p.m. The NAPO-WDC Chapter does not meet in July or August.

There are many opportunities for chapter members to gather, such as Book Clubs and NAPO Neighborhood meetings. For more information go to the members-only section.
