Volunteering with APDO

The APDO Board meets regularly to manage and develop the association together. Our amazing support team assist the board throughout the year and on smaller projects to drive the association forwards. Our administration team deal with all membership issues and administrative tasks for board members.

APDO Board members and the support team all give their time voluntary alongside running their own professional organising businesses.

We wouldn’t be where we are today without the dedication and enthusiasm of our volunteers since 2004. We also know we can continue to achieve great things, with your valued assistance. If you have a particular skill or background you’d like to share, do get in touch!

Volunteering with APDO brings a whole new angle to your decluttering and organising business. It often teaches you skills and knowledge that can be applied to your own business or that stretch you personally to expand as an individual.

If you’ve ever felt isolated running your (often ‘solopreneur’) endeavour then volunteering with APDO can provide that valuable connection and camaraderie reminding you that you’re part of a bigger picture! All the while you’re contributing to putting our industry firmly on the map!

If any of the following roles catch your eye we’d love to hear from you.

From all of us on the APDO Board, thank you and warm regards.
