For the Consumer
NAPO helps individuals or businesses conquer clutter and chaos, through insight, education, tools and systems. And we provide the most important resource of all: the professional organizer.
NAPO Seattle Area's easy-to-use online Professional Organizer Directory connects individuals and business clients with nearby professional organizers. The up-to-date directory lists organizers by last name as well as by specialty.
NAPO helps its members reach a level of credibility available nowhere else. The NAPO member logo on a member's business card or website tells clients that the professional organizer is part of a recognized, reliable association whose members adhere to a code of ethics while conducting business.
