APDO, the Association of Professional Declutterers and Organisers, has appointed two new directors to its Board to continue building its training and professional development opportunities, and to manage the association’s growing membership body.
Joining the Board after almost two years as Professional Development Administrator for APDO, Jaime Frow of Buckinghamshire-based Thoughtfully Organised Homes is now stepping into the role of Professional Development Director and will lead the team providing education, training and support to help members start and grow their businesses. The role will see Jaime overseeing the expansion of APDO’s training portfolio over the coming year, offering further opportunities for established professional organisers as well as those who are new to the industry and seeking a career change.
Amanda Biggs, who runs her business Professionally Organised from Lancashire, has been named as APDO’s new Membership Director and will be supporting APDO’s members, representing their views and fostering increased collaboration amongst peers to drive the industry forward. Amanda will also be working with the Board to grow the association’s membership and raise awareness of decluttering and organising as a profession.
Siân Pelleschi, President of APDO, commented: “These two new appointments reflect our continuing commitment to the professional development and growth of each of our individual members, our expanding association and our wider international community.”
Siân continued: “The Board and I are delighted to welcome Jaime and Amanda, who we are confident will be instrumental in furthering our aims and objectives as an association.”
