Chapter Events

Please be advised that, until further notice, POC has cancelled ALL face-to-face chapter meetings, elections, events and/or gatherings of POC members. Any chapter that wishes to meet virtually for continuation of chapter business, including elections, workshops or just to network, are welcome to use the POC Zoom account at no charge. To book a Zoom meeting, or to see what dates and times are available for your meeting, please visit the Members Only landing page.

TPO Exams

Considering the ongoing developments resulting from the coronavirus, our Trained Professional Organizer exam set to take place at the chapter level must be canceled.

We know how hard many of you have been working to successfully complete the necessary courses to be eligible to take the exam and how disappointed you may feel. Rest assured that our objective is to safeguard the health of our organizing community and we will reschedule the exam when possible.

Wishing you all peace and good health during these trying times!
