WEST LINN, OR, August 23 – Danielle Liu, MPA, CPO, owner of Totally Orderly, LLC, has been appointed President of the Board of Certification of Professional Organizers (BCPO) for the 2017-2019 term. The BCPO bestows the Certified Professional Organizer (CPO) credential upon those individuals who meet tough eligibility standards and pass a rigorous examination. There are approximately 350 CPOs worldwide.
“The BCPO is celebrating its 10-year anniversary in 2017, and I am honored and excited to lead this credentialing Board into the next decade,” Liu commented. “Certified Professional Organizers are serious about their work and have led their customers to profound change. Though the productivity and organizing industry is largely unregulated, CPOs and the BCPO believe their customers are entitled to practitioners who are experienced, possess the most up-to-date knowledge and skills, and adhere to strict and enforceable ethical standards,” she added.
The organizing and productivity industry has grown in popularity with best-selling books such as The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Japanese author Marie Kondo and popular establishments like The Container Store. NAPO, the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals, boasts 3500 members across the globe. The CPO credential is the only certification endorsed by NAPO.
Totally Orderly, LLC, a West Linn, Oregon based company, has provided productivity and organizing services to residential and small business customers throughout the Portland metro area since 2004. Liu has served as a leader on both the national and local boards of NAPO and in 2016 was the recipient of the NAPO President’s Award, one of the industry’s highest honors.
The BCPO is a division of NAPO, a non-profit membership association based out of Mt. Laurel, New Jersey.
