April Chapter Meeting

The NAPO2020 Annual Conference is taking place April 2-5 in Orlando, Florida. You’ll have the opportunity to connect, learn, and share experiences with over 500 like-minded professionals from around the world. Whether you are a newcomer to the profession or have years of experience, the NAPO Annual Conference has something worthwhile for you. However, not everyone can attend conference and those that do attend won’t be able to listen to every presentation.

For the April 2020 NAPO Houston Meeting, we are inviting four veterans who are attending the conference to share their experience. We’re asking them to present 15-20 minutes of one session that excited them, a topic that hasn’t been discussed before, the latest trend in organizing, or a speaker that blew them away with their knowledge.

NAPO Houston purchases the conference recordings each year for our members. There will be a total of 25 sessions to choose from (5 time slots, with 5 difference presentations offered at each time slot). Attend this meeting to find out which sessions are must-listen-to and which ones to avoid.

The conference theme is Focus. Pursue. Become. You may register here or see the program here.

Branding Workshop (Members and Business Partners Only)

Branding Workshop (Members and Business Partners Only)

You asked Rob for more information and you asked him HOW. He has graciously offered to host a branding workshop at ExactMats for NAPO Members and Business Partners.

Branding is not marketing. And marketing isn’t going to build your brand. So what will? Sign up and discover YOUR brand!

In and around his own branding consultancy, Corridor Brand Group, Rob has taken a near full-time role with ExactMats, a startup he helped bring to market in 2000. Since 2004, Rob’s branding clients have included startups, financial institutions, educational institutions, consultancies, a winery, and IFest, Houston’s largest outdoor festival.

Throughout his career, Rob has given many talks to different trade groups and has taught and led multiple workshops at two Houston universities (University of Houston and Rice University’s MBA program) about various aspect of defining and integrating a brand.

In December of 2018, Rob began focusing on ExactMats brand engagement by visiting clients and prospects firsthand, gaining valuable insights and using that feedback and client collaboration to re-make nearly every aspect of the brand, from communication strategy, to delivery and even the products themselves.

In 1993, Rob received his BA in Graphic Communication from the University of Houston.


All members, business partners, and guests are invited to attend our monthly NAPO Houston meeting at the United Way of Greater Houston’s Community Resource Center, located at 50 Waugh Drive, Houston, TX 77007. This is an opportunity for you to network with other organizers and ask questions about business practices, our national and local associations, or about becoming a professional organizer or productivity consultant.
