Solid Foundations - President's Blog by Roz Howland October 2011

14th Oct 11

Have you ever had a client who wanted to buy all the beautiful containers, boxes, folders and latest widgets before they took on any new organising habits?  As Professional Organisers we know that a strong foundation of good organising skills is vital. Then you can add beautiful products. But products alone will never get clients organised.  Even in our own business we know that a strong underlying structure is essential to success. 

It is with this knowledge the AAPO Executive Committee has set about creating a strong, solid base from where to serve YOU, the member. We know we can serve you better if we have solid:

  • Strategy
  • Structure
  • Policy  and
  • Process

If AAPO was a business, these are the essentials any Manager would put in place.

As you know , already this year AAPO has created a Strategic Plan, and in October the Committee held their inaugural Strategic Review meeting….meaning we got together and worked out the best direction for the next 12 months and how to get there. Each AAPO Portfolio  (Events, PR & Membership) now has a 12 month Roadmap, we are writing Policies under each Portfolio and working out ways to better serve you the Member.  It is an amazing time for the industry......and AAPO has some great things coming up, so stay tuned.... Here is a photo from our latest Strategic meeting.
