and NAPO-LA President
How many times has someone told you that life is short? How many
times have you experienced an event that makes you realize that life is,
in fact, short and that you should enjoy and appreciate every moment of
it? A few such moments recently happened to me.
In January, my Dad went back into a Montreal hospital and I flew
home for four days in the midst of work, family life and, of course, the
Awards. Thankfully, it will all be okay, but it made me realize once
again how privileged I am that my life is full of "once-in-a-lifetime
- I recently returned from Brazil where I attended THE one-and-only
Rio Carnival - definitely a "once-in-a-lifetime experience" for me!
- As your President for the past ten months, I feel so proud of
our amazing Chapter for hosting the classy, stylish and sophisticated
NAPO-LA Organizing Awards. A superb event that could not have seen the
light of day without the fantastic Task Force and all the volunteers who
worked together to, once again, make this event the place to be on that
beautiful but somewhat cool January night. A "once-in-a-lifetime
event" for me as the President of NAPO-LA!
- Ditto for the Awards Brunch. The room was full of high energy
and it was so great to connect with friends from the industry and from
all over the world. I was proud to be part of our wonderful
Chapter. Another "once-in-a-lifetime" event for me as the President
- As a member of the Scheme Committee for the Board of
Certification of Professional Organizers (BCPO), I just came back from a
work session in Tampa where, as always, we worked really hard. We have
some great announcements to share with all of you Professional
Organizers - check out the article in this newsletter. A
"once-in-a-lifetime experience" for me as both a CPOŽ and a volunteer!
I could go on and on but needless to say, many of my
"once-in-a-lifetime experiences" come from participating in and
volunteering for what I believe in. Keep this in mind as you vote for
the 2010-2011 NAPO-LA Board. Whether you have your name on the ballot as
one of the new leaders, or just prefer to work in the trenches,
know that you are needed, appreciated and that it surely will be a
"once-in-a-lifetime experience" for you.

keep the show on schedule.
The Awards Brunch, held on Sunday,

gave us an opportunity to bid a last farewell to our fellow organizers,
many of whom traveled long distances to be here with
us. Special thanks to Robin Davi for putting this lovely Brunch

|NAPO-LA Chapter Members Win Big at the Awards!
Leading Edge Award:
Robin Davi, CPO
to Robin Davi in recognition of her extraordinary
actions and efforts to elevate the quality and profile of both NAPO and
NAPO-LA, Chapter President Chantale Bordonaro's remarks about Robin
included the following: "Known as the 'go-to-girl,' Robin
never says no, always puts her energy out there if she thinks you might
need help, and never ever takes the easy road to resolve a complex
situation or task. She leads by example." When the Award was being
announced, Robin said, "I remember Chris McKenry
pulling me to the side of the stage to listen to Chantale, and then I
realized that she was talking about me. I was totally surprised and
could not believe that I was this year's Leading Edge Award
recipient. The night was magical and meant more to me than words
can say. I am truly grateful to be a part of NAPO-LA."
Raising the Bar Award:
This Award is
traditionally given to a member of the NAPO-LA Board of Directors whose
service is above and beyond the call of duty. It is especially
significant because the recipient is chosen by fellow Board members. Leslie
Haber, Director of Professional Development for the past two
years, is this year's winner. Her boundless energy is showcased every
month as she leads each chapter meeting with bravado and humor.
"Receiving The Raising the Bar Award was one of the highlights
of my organizing career," said Leslie. "To be
recognized by my colleagues and fellow Board members was truly a special
moment. I enjoy my work with NAPO-LA immensely. My
involvement with the chapter has given me the opportunity to develop
strong friendships, work relationships, and the chance to learn from my
fellow members every day.
Volunteer of the Year Award:
Volunteer of the Year Award from NAPO-LA was given to Linda
Levine-Quackenbush who was this year's Chair of the Los
Angeles Organizing Awards. Linda worked countless
hours to make this year's Awards show the best ever. She
is a dedicated, detailed, amazing woman and we are proud to acknowledge Linda's
hard work with this Award. When asked how she felt about receiving this
Award, Linda said, "It was a great honor to be recognized by the
NAPO-LA Board of Directors with the Volunteer of the Year
Award. I was totally surprised when I heard my name called! I
was so busy focusing on everything going smoothly during the ceremony
that I was caught literally off guard." She added, "I took on the
responsibility of producing the Awards both as a personal
challenge and as a way to get to know and work closely with other
members of the chapter. As a newer member I believe that
volunteering is the very best way to really become a part of a larger
community of your peers.
Green Award: Sara Getzkin
asked for her thoughts on receiving The Green Award, Sara
said that she wanted to thank all of her colleauges, friends, family
and clients who voted for her! "I am most honored to have received The
Green Award at the 2010 Los Angeles Organizing Awards. I
truly appreciate your support. I don't expect every organizer or
every client to become completely green; however, I do hope to
transfer my green knowledge as much as I possibly can. At
times, when I mention recycling something to a client, they go into "green
mode" and seek out every used battery, old cell phone, old pair of
eyeglasses, etc., they can find because they never realized there was a
way to recycle/repurpose/reuse. I urge you to do the same and see what
Best Office Organizing Product: SurHook File
Folder by Esselte/Pendaflex
was accepted by our very own Associate Member Barb Schmit,
an Esselte Senior Account Manager, who said, "I was thrilled
when Esselte's SureHook File Folder was announced as the
winner of the Best Office Organizing Product at the 2010 Los
Angeles Organizing Awards. Esselte works very hard to
provide the best in supplies for the office and SureHook is the
latest in a long line of innovative products. It was a pleasure to be
able to accept this award on behalf of everyone at Esselte."
Congratulations Barb and Esselte/Pendaflex!
Best Garage Design Firm: OrganizIT!
Gougas, President of OrganizIT! and a NAPO-LA
Associate Member, has been able to leverage industry-leading, innovative
products to take garage organization to the next level. When asked
about his thoughts on receiving this Award, Gus said,
"We are very proud to receive this Award. In just three years in
business, we have been able to establish our company as a leader in the
garage organization industry. We are also very proud of our relationship
with NAPO. In the last year we have worked with numerous NAPO members
to help bring organization and efficiency to homeowners throughout Los
Angeles. It's been a very rewarding experience for everyone involved."

TO RECERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS|
Because BCPOŽ Certification is a living, breathing program,
it is constantly being monitored to ensure that it maintains
consistency with current certification industry standards. With the
onset of BCPOŽ's first Recertification, the annual review of our program
was more important than ever.
As a result of this review, BCPOŽ has modified the criteria for
recertification to be in line with comparable well-established
certification programs and has also modified the criteria for
For additional information on the changes that have been made
to the recertification requirements and CEU eligibility criteria, visit
the FAQ pages on the BCPOŽ website,
which are updated daily.
In concert with our management company, SMT, we believe that
these changes will strengthen our credentials as well as the
professional stature for all CPOŽ's, present and future.
MAJOR CHANGES FOR RECERTIFICATION
for recertification have been changed to remove the work experience
requirement. Effective March 1, 2010, for all current CPOŽ's,
recertification requirements are as follows:
- Assert to continuing practice as a Professional Organizer
- Pay the Annual Maintenance Fee (AMF)
- Obtain 45 eligible CEUs in the 3-year recertification period OR
take and pass the CPOŽ examination
MAJOR CHANGES FOR CEU ELIGIBILITY
Continuing Education Unit (CEU) eligibility requirements have
been revised to include eligible online and recorded courses. The
revised CEU eligibility requirements are:
Classes must be at least 60 minutes long.
Classes must provide skills and knowledge that allow you to better
serve your clients.
Classes may be live, web-based, or recorded
For Recertification, of the 45 required CEUs, at least 30 must be
for live classes; up to 15 may be web-based or recorded classes.
Classes, whether live, web-based, or recorded, must provide proof
of both attendance and completion of the course.

QUESTIONS TO ASK POTENTIAL CLIENTS
and a Golden Circle member
By Barbara Ricketts, CPOŽ
a.k.a. "The Mess
sound familiar? The phone rings; you answer it in your most
organized/professional voice and the first thing you hear is: "I think I
need you. Can you tell me what you do and how
much you charge?"
About 80% of my clients start the
conversation this way, and it became clear to me early on that these "potential clients" really didn't want their questions
answered right then. They weren't ready for the answers. What they
really wanted was to tell me about their
particular "organizing situation."
It's important to make a good impression
and start building a relationship in the
first 60 seconds of the initial phone call. We need to listen
to them to build trust, demonstrate
empathy and understanding, and be objective and sensitive to the
client's specific "situation."
As they describe their homes or offices, I
take notes so I can ask questions later. I want this to be a frank, fair
and objective conversation, and I want this potential client to provide me with
information rather than my just answering their questions.
very important to track what marketing
venue is working); and if they've ever worked with a professional organizer before. To build
rapport, there may, of course, be a little side conversation if we have
something in common.
After their "description of the situation" (which may
take 10 to 15 minutes), I ask if they share their space with children or
anyone else; where they're located and how
long they've lived there; how they heard about me, (
At this point, I ask if
there is anything else they think I should know just to make sure they
feel I've really listened to them describe their unique situation
(because every person is unique!).
Now the "potential client" is ready to hear
what I have to offer, so we can determine if there's a fit between their
needs and my particular organizing skills
and techniques. My goal is to make sure this person has a successful
experience getting their space(s) organized.
To build credibility, I begin by telling them that I offer confidential, nonjudgmental
organizing consulting and hands-on
organizing services. I briefly review my experience and
say that I'm a member of The National
Association of Professional Organizers and, to create value for my
services, I also tell them that I am a Certified Professional Organizer.
Next I describe my particular approach to
organizing and a little about my
ask if they have questions and explain that I start with a Needs
Assessment at their home to determine what
kind of organizing services they will need. I clearly quote what my fees
are for my services. The last question is "When would you like to schedule a Needs Assessment?"
My goal is for the potential client to feel
heard, less stressed, and confident that help is on the way!

Grocery Shopping Bargains
Check grocery ads in the newspaper for bargains. Use the sale
items to plan your weekly menu to save money. Check your
cupboards and freezer before shopping to be sure you do not buy more
sale items than you already have.

Collecting Business Cards
When you take
someone's business card, jot a note to yourself on the back so you'll
remember who the person is; e.g., "met at conference," "referred by Mary
Smith," "painted Joe's kitchen," etc. Also, write a note
about any follow-up that you promised to do so you won't forget.
