A Brief History of the
Institute for Challenging Disorganization

The Institute for Challenging Disorganization was founded in 1992 by Judith Kolberg as the National Study Group on Chronic Disorganization (NSGCD). At first, NSGCD operated as an unofficial Special Interest Group within the National Association of Professional Organizers. In 2001, NSGCD transitioned into an independent organization and incorporated as a California public benefits corporation.

In 2008, acknowledging that the name National Study Group on Chronic Disorganization should be broadened to reflect the nature of its work and the international composition of its subscribers, NSGCD’s Board of Directors began to explore the feasibility of a name change. In July 2010, the Board of Directors approved the change of the association’s name to the Institute for Challenging Disorganization, effective January 1, 2011.

Dedicated to elevating the field of chronic disorganization, ICD launched its Certificate and Certification Program in 2001 and began holding conferences in 2002. Together with its other educational offerings, publications, and research, ICD continues to benefit people challenged by chronic disorganization.

ICD’s vision is:
To be the premier resource on chronic disorganization.
