BECOMING A MEMBER OF YPO SOUTHERN 7
YPO Southern 7 invites qualified prospects to apply for membership. Please review the membership criteria before completing an application. If you have questions about membership, please e-mail Amanda Berry.
All other titles accepted by YPO International (Managing Partner, Managing Director, Publisher or Chairman of the Board) are subject to approval by the Southern 7 Chapter Membership Committee. Note: Both a chairman of the board/CEO and a president of the same qualifying corporation may not simultaneously be members of YPO. Division Presidents will only qualify if their division is North America or larger.
The corporation must meet dollar volume requirements based on the type of corporation he or she runs, as follows:
Please note these are minimum requirements. Individual YPO chapters may require additional criteria. In addition, membership criteria used in the application must be certified by an outside auditing firm or other approved independent third party. Only external certified public accountants (CPAs), chartered accountants (CAs) or lawyers/attorneys are approved as independent third parties. Please note that individuals on the prospective YPO member company’s staff, regardless of title, are not authorized to certify the membership criteria.
Funds for the operation of YPO are obtained by the collection of dues and initiation fees. For the FYE 6/30/2017, total Initiation Fees are $5,300 ($3,300 YPO International + $2,000 Chapter) and total Annual Dues are $6,000 ($3,300 YPO International + $2,700 Chapter). Dues are payable each year on June 1. Dues are prorated monthly for new members according to join date.
The Treasurer will give notice to any account not paid 60 days after the dues notice and a 25% surcharge will be added to the account. If full payment is not received within 30 days of the second notice, the member will be dropped from Southern 7 Chapter Membership.
Any two Southern 7 Chapter Members may serve as sponsors, except the current Chapter Membership Officer and the current Chapter Chair. Conditional Members may not serve as sponsors.
Each sponsoring Member is responsible for knowing the prospect well before he or she agrees to sponsor. By agreeing to be a sponsor, the Member is committing to make every effort to attend the Big 3 meeting to which the prospect is invited, serving as the prospect host. If this is not possible, the sponsor agrees to assist in finding a host for the prospect.
If you have questions about becoming a YPO member, please e-mail Amanda Berry. You can also call +1.770.690.8449, ext. 20.
