NAPO Conference 2017

Tomorrow I head off to my 10th NAPO conference. This year it is held in Pittsburgh.

As I think about our conferences, I always look forward to learning about the latest trends, resources, and products in the organizing industry. I get excited thinking about sitting in on workshops and presentations given by some of the great experts in our field.

During the conference I always receive information and inspiration that improve my services to my clients. I enjoy meeting face to face organizers I have only chatted with via Facebook, reconnecting with organizers that I only see at conference, and meeting organizers from all over the globe.

I also look forward to a social evening with other organizers from our Georgia Chapter as we go out to dinner one evening and catch up with each other.

When I return from conference, I always develop an action plan to fully benefit from my conference experience.

NAPO Conference 2015

Next week I head off to my 8th NAPO conference. It is in LA this year and I am so excited both for the conference itself and because I have never visited LA before.

I look forward to learning about the latest trends, resources, and products in the organizing industry. I am excited about sitting in on workshops and presentations given by some of the great experts in our field. The opening keynote presentation – The Art of Letting Go – given by The Mimimalists should be fascinating.

NAPO Annual Conference – 2012

Next week I will be attending the NAPO conference in Baltimore. This will be my 6th conference. I am really getting excited about it!
I always like to set some goals for myself before I head off. I want to get as much as possible from this glorious experience.

This year I want to learn about some of the latest trends, resources, and products in the organizing industry. I want to sit at the feet of some of the great experts in our field and use their knowledge to improve my services. I will listen to presenters not only for their information but for tips on how to improve my presenting skills. I will have a meeting with other organizer/presenters as well. I plan to meet and network with organizers from all over – some of which I chat regularity with on Facebook. I look forward to rooming with Jeri Dansky, an organizer from the San Francisco area.

I also plan to have some fun. I know I will have some social time with organizers from my own chapter – I believe more than 20 are attending and several are presenting. I also hope to have a chance to see some of Baltimore.

When I return, I will develop an action plan from this wonderful experience.
