Our parent association, NAPO, was founded in 1985 as a non-for-profit educational association and soon began establishing a credible reputation in professional organization and productivity services nationwide. As one of over 30 chapters of this respected institution, NAPO Chicago helps people live and work more efficiently, with far less stress and a lot more free time.
The National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO) is a group of approximately 4,000 Professional Organizers and Productivity Consultants dedicated to helping individuals and businesses bring order and efficiency to their lives. Our vision is to have the world recognize the value of organizing and turn to NAPO as the leading organizing and productivity authority. Our mission is to develop, lead, and promote Professional Organizers, Productivity Consultants, and the industry as a whole.
