The first hour is most often a guest speaker. In the past, we have had presentations about bookkeeping, marketing, branding, Institute for Challenging Disorganization (ICD), social media, and more!
In the second hour we tackle chapter business and do a round table Q & A session.
The chapter encourages everyone to BYOB (Bring Your Own Beverage) in an effort to be more environmentally friendly. Disposable plastic water bottles will no longer be supplied. Thank you to everyone for doing their part.
Our meetings are free for POC members or a $20 fee for non-members. Guests may attend up to 2 meetings after which you will be asked to join POC to become a member. We accept cash or cheques and receipts will be provided.
Not only do you reap the benefits of gaining knowledge and comradery from fellow professional organizers by attending chapter meetings but you also get a chance to win some amazing prizes! These include:
A chance to win a FREE POC membership for the following year – attendance is taken at each meeting for our rewards program. The member with the most points come March is the member awarded this prize. Each of the following actions earns you 1 point:
Being a Facebook group member
Attending a meeting or event (unless late)
Wearing your name tag at the meeting
A chance to win a $100 restaurant gift card – this prize is also awarded in March at the same time as free POC membership. Award of this prize is conducted via a draw. Each time you attend a chapter meeting you earn one ballot. Attending chapter meetings is the only means of earning a ballot. The more ballots you obtain, the greater chance you have of winning.
