Where Is YPO?
YPO members have chapter options and choices
YPO has over 450 chapters spanning 15 regions and 130+ countries worldwide. All members have a primary chapter membership, while some elect to belong to more than one local or regional chapter, such as the YPO Southern 7 Chapter. Each chapter designs its own annual calendar of social and learning events to meet the needs of its members.
Who Is YPO?
YPO is a not-for-profit organization governed by members and for members who stand collectively in alignment around four core principles:
A Community of Peers
Lifelong Education and Idea Exchange
A Safe Haven of Trust, Respect and Confidentiality
A Uniquely Personal Experience
YPO is overseen by an international board of elected peer members who ensure that the organization stays true to its core principles and continuously pursues quality at every level of the member experience. YPO is supported by a professional management team of 250 staff, led by a chief executive officer who reports to the YPO international board.
There is no single way to experience YPO. YPO is a uniquely personal experience. There are multiple channels within each platform that make it easy to engage with YPO and unlock the full value of your membership.
