Spring Cleaning is second only to New Year resolutions as a source of excitement and anxiety for people everywhere. So we're planning on kicking Spring off right by hosting our friend, Andrew Mellen, to Elder Hall. Join us March 25th as we welcome “The Most Organized Man in America” to lead a special one day interactive workshop on effective solutions for streamlining your life. Period. Andrew is a best-selling author, speaker, and professional organizer who truly earned the title “The Most Organized Man in America.” The workshop will teach you the best ways to deal with all the major clutter hotspots, including paper, email, kitchens, garages, attics, basements and more. Each participant will leave with a checklist and a plan of easy ways to make this process fun, fast and 'almost' effortless.  Andrew’s method for getting rid of clutter and increasing productivity provide the perfect tools for any creative team. His proven process delivers reliable and measurable results, while Andrew’s sense of humor and perspective will leave you feeling ready to tackle the challenge.
