Hollywood Film Cultural Organization Gets Organizing Make-Over During Get Organized Month

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 8, 2007 -- "Lights, Camera, and Organization" will be the theme for The American Cinematheque, when over 25 members of the National Association of Professional Organizers, Los Angeles (NAPO-LA) chapter volunteer their services next Monday, January 15th. NAPO-LA is donating over $10,000 of services to organize the offices of the American Cinematheque, 6712 Hollywood Boulevard, in Hollywood during the third annual Get Organized Month sponsored by NAPO. The mega organizing event will begin at 10 am and be completed by 5 pm.

"Each year we help busy non-profits get organized while sharing the skills with the staff that will make them even more efficient," said NAPO-LA President Chris McKenry. "Getting organized is one of the top 5 New Year's resolutions people make and with over 100 NAPO-LA members ready and available to assist in Los Angeles, it is easier than most people think. In the past we have organized the offices of the National Council of Jewish Women, Project Angel Food, and Habitat for Humanity."

The American Cinematheque is a non-profit, viewer-supported cultural organization dedicated exclusively to the public presentation of the Moving Picture in all its forms. The Cinematheque presents the best of film and video -- ranging from the classics to the outer frontiers of the art form.

The American Cinematheque was created in 1981 to honor and promote America's indigenous art form -- the Moving Picture and present the full range of film and video, not otherwise available to the widest possible audience. It established a forum for an on-going dialogue between filmmakers and filmgoers and provides a high profile exhibition facility for other independent film and video organizations, encouraging and supporting new talent by creating a showcase for their work.

"Identifying clutter and helping clients make tough decisions is always the first step in getting organized. In most businesses, 80% of information filed is never again seen. For this reason, NAPO-LA is proud to have 1-800-Got-Junk as an event sponsor," stated McKenry. 1-800-Got-Junk will donate their services hauling away all the unwanted "clutter" from the day. Esselte is also providing filing products for the organization.

The National Association of Professional Organizers began in Los Angeles in 1985 with a handful of members. Today NAPO has over 3,900 members around the world and is the largest organization dedicated to the professional organizing industry.
