Here to share about the NAPO Minnesota Chapter is current president Sheila Halek!

Tell us about yourself:
"I was previously Vice President/President Elect for two years. I have been a NAPO member since 2018. I'm a solopreneur with the exception of having my husband's help when I need muscle or a custom closet built for one of my clients.”

What makes your chapter special?
"It sounds cliche' but our people make our chapter special. We are hearty people (you have to be when you live in this climate) and we returned to in-person meetings quickly after COVID and haven't stopped since. All of our meetings are in person - nothing virtual. In 2024, we will are celebrating 30 years as a NAPO Chapter! We still have one founding member in our Chapter, Louise Kurzeka, and she is full of a wealth of knowledge that we regularly get to glean information from. Louise is pictured in back with the red blazer."

Are there any star volunteers you'd like to shine a light on?
"CariAnne Kestrel. She is a newbie (within the last year) but from the minute she became a member, she consistently volunteers to help out with the welcome table at Chapter meetings or greet people as they come in. She is always ready to help with a smile on her face.

Thank you Sheila for sharing about NAPO Minnesota and especially your leadership and contributions to NAPO!

Our February Volunteer Spotlight is Ellen Rubin Delap, CPO® of professional-organizer.com!

Tell us about yourself:
"My current position is President-Elect of BCPO. I am on the leadership team responsible for strategic planning, communication, and overseeing the certification program. I firmly believe in certification and continue as a CPO® because I love ethics, education, and training.”

Tell us about a volunteering moment within NAPO:
"Together, we achieve far more than we could on our own. Collaborating as a team allows us to navigate our path strategically, ensuring that we make progress together. My contributions combined with those of our board play a vital role in our collective success, and I appreciate the positive impact we create as a cohesive unit. I am grateful for the many volunteer opportunities which are all a part of NAPO.“

How does volunteering with NAPO make you feel?
"Volunteering for NAPO has proven to be an immensely rewarding experience for me and has also played a pivotal role in my personal and professional growth. As I immersed myself in various aspects of NAPO's operations, I found the opportunity to develop new skills, broaden my knowledge, and gain invaluable hands-on experience.
The exposure to diverse tasks and responsibilities has been particularly enriching. It has not only honed my problem-solving and communication abilities but has also strengthened my strategic planning skills and overall adaptability. Being part of a dynamic and collaborative environment at NAPO has allowed me to navigate through challenges, learn from the diverse expertise of my peers, and contribute meaningfully.”

Thank you Ellen for your time, energy, and dedication to NAPO. We're grateful!
Ellen was nominated by Robyn Reynolds, CPO®.
