The Halton-Peel and Durham Chapters of POC are joining forces once again this month to offer the very best virtual meeting experience to our valued members and guests! Together, we will learn, grow and network.

This month's presentation will offer us an Expert Panel featuring four of our very own POC members! They will be ready and willing to share their knowledge and insights, a testament to how fortunate we are to be a part of this great organization of professionals who are so eager to help their colleagues succeed. After all, why reinvent the wheel?

Alison Lush

Alison had built a solid foundation in her 10-Year career in the professional organizing industry through multiple credentials, successful client work, international speaker experience, high-profile volunteer roles, and peer recognition. And then the pandemic hit. Two weeks hiding under the covers led to a 180-degree business shift toward Virtual Organizing, and a whole new chapter began!

A Silver Leaf POC member who has served on the executive for the North GTA Chapter since 2016 and recently transferred to the Halton Peel chapter!

The services offered are as unique as the client needs and conducted in person within the home and workspaces and virtually as needed. Ida invests a great deal of time networking with other business owners and volunteering in her community and these partnerships have helped grow her business over the years.
