Mount Laurel, NJ (PRWEB) November 13, 2013
It is with great sadness that the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) announces the death of Immediate Past President and long-time member, Angela F. Wallace, CPO®, of Novato, CA, who passed away on November 12, 2013 after a brief illness.
One of the first 200 professional organizers worldwide to earn a Certified Professional Organizer (CPO®) designation, Ms. Wallace was an active NAPO member for the past 20 years, and leaves a remarkable legacy of service and volunteer leadership. Throughout her NAPO membership, she assumed multiple local and national volunteer leadership positions, including serving as president of the association from 2011 – 2013. A firm believer in mentoring and leadership development, she most recently served on the Board of Directors as Immediate Past President and as Chair of the Nominating Committee.
“As her closest colleagues and friends have long known, NAPO meant more to Angela than an association of professionals: NAPO has been -- and always will be -- an extension of Angela's family,” states NAPO president, Mary Dykstra-Novess. “We will remember Angela for her compassionate leadership and for her commitment to bridging NAPO's past with the highest vision of its future.”
