The Ottawa POC Chapter is comprised of members from the National Capital Region (NCR), the Outaouais Region of Western Quebec and other surrounding cities from Eastern Ontario.
Our chapter is committed to supporting our members by learning and growing together as professional organizers and entrepreneurs.
Want to learn more about the field of professional organizing or connect with other organizers already in business?
Why not join our next POC Ottawa meeting?
We typically meet the 3rd Wednesday of each month from 7:00pm to 9:00pm at:
*Please note that some meetings may be held at different locations or times depending on the topic/activity of the meeting. Please view the POC Event Calendar for any changes.
*Please RSVP to chapter meetings by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
To attend as a guest please contact us at email@example.com.
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:
How to win? The gift card is a draw-based prize in which everyone's name goes into a hat equally. The free POC membership is based on a point system where you accumulate points from simply attending chapter meetings, wearing your nametag, and volunteering (AKA become a "task-a-teer") to help out your chapter. Points are added up and then you receive a ballot for each point. Once again the ballots go into a hat and a name is drawn.
