Prominent Professional Organizer Honored by His Own at 2007 LA Organizing Awards

Organizer Chris McKenry Wins Top Honors at LA Organizing Awards

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 12, 2007 -- Chris McKenry, a prominent leader in professional organizing, was honored Saturday, February 3, 2007, at the 2007 Los Angeles Organizing Awards, sponsored by the National Association of Professional Organizers- Los Angeles (NAPO-LA).

His professional organizing company, Get It Together LA!, was voted Best Closet Design Company, based on public vote on this past November. By offering hands-on organizing services to help clients part with their clutter, it was only natural for Chris to provide custom designed closets for discerning taste.

Chris also received the Raising the Bar Award, which is chosen by the NAPO-LA board of directors and recognizes the board member who went above the call of duty to promote the chapter and advancement of the professional organizing industry.

Chris is currently serving as 2005-2007 President of the National Association of Professional Organizers, Los Angeles Chapter, and is on the board of the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.

Two major chapter events were inspired by Chris' leadership: The Professional Resources and Networking Expo and the Los Angeles Organizing Awards.

The annual awards gala recognizes the growing professional industry and celebrates the individual achievements of the most influential organizing experts who define standards for home and business productivity. The awards serve as a chance to commemorate organizing professionals, recognize businesses and products that enhance the success of industry professionals, and generate industry public awareness.

Thanks to Chris' efforts this past year, the NAPO-LA chapter has been seen on CBS 2, KCAL 9, ABC 7, heard on NPR Coast-to-Coast, and featured in the Orange County Register and Los Angeles Magazine. Chris has been featured in several articles including Long Beach Home Improvement and Oprah Magazines.
