Organize for Success, LLC owner, Emily Parks, named to second term as President of NAPO North Carolina
Nearly 25% of homeowners with 2-car garages are using them as storage, and the self-storage industry boasts annual revenues of over $20 billion. The average U.S. executive wastes six weeks annually searching for important documents lost in clutter. Yet, the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) reports a surge in membership, topping 4,000 members in 2011. Apparently, help to manage America's clutter is on the way.
Emily Parks, who was named to a second term as President of the North Carolina chapter of NAPO, remarks about the trends impacting the industry, "We've become a nation of multi-tasking marvels with more stuff than time. The pressure to keep pace can be exhaustive for many. Smaller spaces, tighter schedules and increased workloads necessitate the need for professional organizing support."
Parks' term, which officially begins May 15, 2012, will be focused on continuing to shift the perception that many still have about the organizing industry. While some rave about the benefits of professional organizing, many are just unaware. Parks says she is committed to educating consumers and business owners about the tangible results they can achieve through professional organizing, including the increase in quality of life, decrease in stress and increase in productivity.
During her second term, Parks will encourage a balance in the chapter's programs and offerings for both seasoned and new-to-the-industry professionals. NAPO North Carolina includes professional organizers with varied areas of business and residential specialties as well as years of industry experience. Parks says supporting members' varied needs is critical to NAPO-NC's success.
Parks anticipates new challenges on the horizon in her next term. "Upholding the integrity and ethics of the profession becomes increasingly crucial during rapid growth. Right now is an exciting time for professional organizers, but it's going to require a high level of discipline from all of us in the industry," Parks comments. NAPO upholds a high standard of ethics for its members, confronting issues like client privacy and encryption of sensitive electronic documents. NAPO will continue to play an important role in the community as more professional organizers enter the market.
Getting more done with less is the mantra for many in America. Professional organizing is a fast-growing industry that is quickly becoming a necessity to maintain work/life balance.
