Benefits of Business Partner Membership
"Our Business Partner Membership with NAPO-St. Louis has greatly improved our sales and company as a whole. Not only do we benefit from the referrals from Professional Organizers that are members of NAPO-St. Louis, we also get great advice on developing and growing our business from the chapter meeting program speakers. Our company also gets great exposure and branding through public events sponsored by NAPO-St. Louis." - Briana Gerler, Past Business Partner
Network with Organizing Industry Professionals
NAPO-St. Louis Business Partners are invited to attend chapter meetings, events, and socials. Our chapter meetings (monthly except December) and programs enhance your knowledge of local organizing and productivity related resources, making you an even better resource for your clients. Our monthly socials provide an informal way to network with organizing and productivity industry professionals, share knowledge, and brainstorm new ideas for your business.
Showcase Your Business
Business Partners are given the opportunity to showcase their business to NAPO-St. Louis members and at public events sponsored by NAPO-St. Louis. Business Partners are invited to sponsor one meeting each year and give a 10-minute talk to attendees.
Increased Credibility and Visibility
As NAPO membership skyrockets, its position as "The Organizing Authority" solidifies. As a NAPO-St. Louis Business Partner, your company information will be included in our Business Partner Directory which increases the visibility of your organizing or productivity related product or service. As a business partner you may also display the NAPO-St. Louis logo on your marketing materials, business website, and business cards.
The NAPO-St. Louis website gives the public easy access to NAPO-St. Louis Business Partners by identifying Business Partners as supporters of NAPO-St. Louis and as a local source for organizing and productivity related products and services. Being listed on our chapter website is a key referral source for all our members!
In addition to the opportunity to serve on our Chapter’s Board, NAPO-St. Louis is always seeking volunteers for various chapter activities. Some of these volunteer positions include serving on a committee, while others are micro-volunteer opportunities that require a small time commitment. By volunteering to help in our chapter, you gain valuable leadership skills, increase networking opportunities, and grow your own business by adding new skills to your toolkit.
On the odd-numbered months, members get together for two hours of fun at a member's home or a local restaurant. On the even-numbered months, members stay after the chapter meeting for a Brown Bag Social. These are informal ways to get to know fellow members, share knowledge, and brainstorm new ideas for our businesses and for our chapter.
The programs at our chapter meetings offer opportunities to learn about local resources, business development, and organizing methodologies. NAPO-St. Louis invests in its members’ continuing education by providing access to NAPO National conference recordings. The recordings provide the opportunity for Business Partners to learn more about the organizing and productivity industry, as well as marketing and other business development topics.
The NAPO-St. Louis chapter has an electronic forum, which allows Business Partners the opportunity to ask questions of NAPO-St. Louis members and fellow Business Partners, compare notes, and share resources.
"Organized Times" Newsletter
The chapter newsletter, Organized Times, is an excellent resource for NAPO-St. Louis members. One Business Partner is profiled in each issue, giving you the opportunity to tell NAPO-St. Louis members more about your business.
