Global Organizer Relaunch

This is one for my fellow Professional organizers out there. Regardless of how long you have been in the industry,
Global Organisers" is the place for you to network.
This is network that was dreamed up after the NAPO Conference in Reno in 2008, however due to using a not
so flash platform it did not grow the wings I had hoped for. However, now I have discovered 
I have created "Global Organizers" using a platform that allow the members to grow the network.
So now the easy bit. Join today, start sharing your news, ideas, events, training and information. 
This is no-holds-barred social network for Professional Organizers throughout the globe.
You are welcome to share things that you feel wold benefit fellow professional organizer. 
All I ask is that you don't spam fellow members and that you respect the thoughts and ideas of fellow members.
Simple as that.
So join up today:

The end of an era!

Today marks the day that I pass the Baton of AAPO to a new President. I have served on the committee of AAPO since it was just a concept. It was a privilege to work with Lisa Baldwin, Lisa Rowley, Lissanne Oliver and Amanda Sarden on the Founding Committee of the Australasian Association of Professional organisers. Since we took on members in February 2006 I have served as Executive Secretary and then 2 terms as President. It has been an exciting time of growth and learning for me. Now I take on the role of Immediate Past President, and hope to develop a Professional Develpment program that will benefit all AAPO members.
So today is really a day I can relax, maybe, as the role has been ably accepted by Angela Esnouf, who has been my fabulous VP for the past 2 terms. Good luck Angela with everything that you experience in the next 12 months. I know you will rock.
As they say, when one door closes another door opens. So I have as of today stepped into the shoes of "President" National Speakers Association NZ Christchurch Chapter. Some may say out of the frying pan into the fire, LOL. Not me I am excited by the challenge.
One of my passions is to see people develop, learn, grown and succeed in their own passions. So having been AAPO President and becoming NSANZ Christchurch President puts me in the place that makes me feel like I am giving a little back.
I want to take this opportunity to say Thank you to all the friends and colleagues I have the honor of knowing from these experience. I am looking forward to continuing to work along side you all in making a difference, one day at a time.
