Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to work and strategize with you all. I have high hopes for the NAPO-South Florida Chapter and am confident that you will set a great example which other new (and older) chapters can follow!"

"Membership in the NAPO-South Florida Chapter provides excellent educational opportunities with the exceptional speakers and programs offered. The chapter members truly come together in a spirit of cooperation, not competition. Meetings and events are wonderful opportunities to network and share business and organizing best practices. Members also participate in numerous community service events. As founding Vice President and continuing participation on the Board has raised my leadership skills to a much higher level and allowed me to work with some amazing colleagues."
- Gail Biers, Rooms Restyled
"As a NAPO Member I recognized the significance of working with other Organizing Professionals and so I decided to get involved on the Steering Committee to help form NAPO-South Florida. It has been a very rewarding experience for me. I have also been involved as Chapter Treasurer, and now I'm eager to assume a new position as "A Greeter" for new guests. There is something for everyone. The NAPO- South Florida programs are wonderful too and I enjoy working along side my colleagues and collaborating on projects in our community".
