It's never too early to become an AAPO member.
I speak with many budding Professional Organisers and some think you need to be up and running in business before you can qualify to be an AAPO member. In fact, when you're just starting out or even thinking about starting out is the perfect time to join AAPO.
There are many resources that can help those new in business or the Organising world get traction, not to mention the wisdom of more experienced members.
That's one of the best things about AAPO - the openness of our members, and the way they are willing to share their knowledge and expertise. We believe in a strong and growing industry.
