apdo-uk is a growing organisation, regularly featured in the national and local media. Being listed in the directory will increase traffic to your own website and bring you potential new customers.
Annual membership costs £130 plus a one-off joining fee of £30.
Membership of apdo-uk is open to all businesses who work with their clients to achieve an organised and decluttered state, whether in the office or the home.
NB: If your business is in a related industry (for example, removal services, house clearance, furniture & storage solutions etc.), please read the details below about Corporate Partnership and contact us for details.
Each apdo member receives:
- Up to three listings on the website. Each business has a home base (where they live) and can choose up to 2 other regions that they cover
- Yahoo group membership for members'-only discussions on all aspects of the organising & decluttering industry
All members are required to:
- Comply with our Code of Ethics
- Join the apdo-uk Yahoo group when invited to do so
- Add a reciprocal link to their website, where applicable
This is intended for use by those who are in the process of setting up their businesses as Professional Organisrs, but are not yet quite ready to 'go live'. Through taking this option, you will have access to membership information, our Conference and regional networking events, the Yahoo member-only group and other matters. However, you will not have a Directory Listing at this point.
You will be charged the normal membership rate, and receive the various opportunities listed above, but will not be listed on our website. When you feel you are ready for listing, your membership expiry date will be extended by 50% of the time that's already passed since you joined - in other words, your probationary time will cost you half-price. So if, for instance, you paid your fee on 12 April but took your full listing 12 weeks later, your new expiry date would be 6 weeks further on - i.e. instead of 12 April, your new anniversary would be 24 May.
If you wish to take up this option, please contact Cassie Tillett in the first instance as soon as you have submitted your initial application.
Using our logo
Once your membership fee has been received and the application processed, you will receive your invitation to the member-only Yahoo! group. You'll find (together with many other resources) all our logo files stored there ready for your use in your literature or on your website.
