Chapters vary in size depending on location. As a chapter member you meet once a month and typically have 10-12 local chapter events each year. Chapters provide learning, networking and social opportunities for our members. Chapters are organized into regions to provide gateways to YPO members and experiences within regions and across the globe.
YPO originated the concept of Forum and provides the gold-standard experience. Our members can choose to join a chapter, network, or regional forum, whichever best suits their interest. Forums meet once a month and host an annual member retreat. YPO also offers Forums for spouse/partners and young adult children. Our members often cite their Forum experience as one of the most rewarding and valuable within YPO.
Today, there are 55 networks and more than 150 active member groups to choose from ranging from business, personal, social enterprise and family networks and groups. Networks offer more than 600 annual events and engage members and spouse/partners online, through global conference calls and monthly communications.
Members can choose to attend the events that most appeal to their interests and availability. More than one-half of all events are open to spouse/partners and family to enable members to share the YPO experience with their loved ones.
Mentoring within YPO is a great way to share your knowledge and expertise. Further your own professional growth and development by gaining new perspectives and insights. Expand your network, gain undiscovered insight into your own strengths and weaknesses and leave a legacy.
Your leadership journey within YPO can include leadership positions within chapters, regions, networks, and committees to enrich your personal journey of growth, learning and giving back.

To expand the peer-to-peer idea exchange, we created the For Presidents by Presidents video series where members share business knowledge and experience in a convenient and easy video format of 300 seconds or less. Or Ten Minute Tips from the Top, our popular podcast series featuring insights and advice from YPO members and experts.
YPO members have exclusive access to world-class education, business resources, wealth management and professional services, as well as special discounts and offers for travel and hotel accommodations.
