The 2008 Los Angeles Organizing Awards will honor the people, products and services that make L.A. neater and more productive.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 6, 2007 -- Sherri Shepherd, co-host of ABC-TV's "The View," will host the Third Annual Los Angeles Organizing Awards, presented by the Los Angeles Chapter of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO-LA). The Awards honor the best in the organizing industry, including professional organizers who set the standard for home and business productivity, and products and services that help consumers and businesses organize everything, including information, as well as manage their time and control habits that can lead to clutter and chaos.
Shepherd, also an actress ("Less than Perfect," ABC, "Everybody Loves Raymond," CBS, "30 Rock," NBC, "Beauty Shop," MGM Studios) and comedienne, will preside at the February 1, 2008 event to be held at the Luxe Hotel Bel Air, CA. Shepherd has used the services of a professional organizer and will speak about her experience.
"You can't be too famous or too organized in Los Angeles," said John Trosko, NAPO-LA President. "In fact, running a successful household or business requires supreme organization. Members of our profession are at the forefront in helping people and companies overcome their organizing challenges and become more efficient and productive. The Awards celebrate the profession and enable the public to learn, firsthand, about the most effective organizing strategies, products and services available."
NAPO-LA Vice President Jodie Watson added, "We love a good label-maker, but at the end of the day the organizing profession is about improving people's lives so they can operate their homes and businesses more efficiently, be more productive, be more comfortable managing their own possessions, papers and information, and develop habits and techniques to ensure the benefits of better organization are long-lasting."
