It’s official: The Annual Conference of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) is the industry’s “Most Valuable Educational Resource,” according to organizing industry professionals worldwide who voted in the fifth annual Los Angeles Organizing Awards. Scheduled just one night before the Grammys, the Los Angeles Organizing Awards, or “Orgies,” were presented on Saturday, January 30th at The Raleigh Studios in Hollywood, CA. Over 200 celebrity organizers, industry professionals and members of the public assembled at the gala, hosted by actress and comedienne Kim Coles. The Los Angeles chapter of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO-LA) produced the event along with Presenting Sponsor, Avery Dennison.
The Los Angeles Organizing Awards were introduced in 2006 by NAPO-LA to honor professional organizers, organizing retailers, organizing products, services & resources, charities, technology providers, authors and the media for their contributions to the organizing industry. Twenty-three awards were chosen by the public and NAPO members. Every year the event concludes NAPO-LA’s celebration of “National Get Organized Month.”
“NAPO, a national association dedicated to serving the field of organizing through education, is honored to receive the Most Valuable Educational Resource Award from its peers in the organizing industry,” stated NAPO President, Laura Leist, CPO®, when accepting the award on behalf of the organization. “NAPO offers a wealth of education that you will not find anywhere else.

This honor is a tribute to the many personal hours they have invested.” Video clips from the LA Organizing Awards are available, including Ms. Leist's red carpet interview: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SAwDGgNKHM and acceptance speech: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPgY5xNjbLE.
