The GOLDEN CIRCLE was established by NAPO in 1990. It was created to recognize members who have attained an elevated level of experience. The Golden Circle acknowledges the expertise of members who have been engaged in the business of organizing for at least five years and have been a NAPO member for at least one year.
Currently, the NAPO North Coast Ohio Chapter boasts 8 industry members who have attained Golden Circle Status. Our Golden Circle members provide annual programming for the chapter, and serve as "buddies" for new and potential chapter members.
Professional Organizers with three or more years of experience who have accumulated at least 1,500 hours of paid work experience are eligible to become a Certified Professional Organizer (CPO®) by sitting for an exam (offered through the Board of Certification for Professional Organizers).
Currently, the NAPO North Coast Ohio Chapter boasts 3 industry members who have achieved CPO® status.
