The YPO experience typically begins through a local chapter, which provides a world of educational and networking opportunities close to home. Most chapters are local, however members also may join chapters that encompass larger geographic areas, such as YPO Greater Europe or YPO Global One.
- Chapters typically meet monthly for programs on topics such as succession planning, investing in China, family philanthropy, board development and much more.
- Forum connects members from the same chapter in smaller groups to share issues and concerns in a completely confidential environment – a “personal board of directors.”
- To make connections outside of the local chapter or country, YPO is organized into regions that provide additional opportunities around the globe.
