One of four Young Presidents’ Organization chapters in New York, the New York City chapter was founded in 2004 and is limited to 80 members. With members representing over 50 different business and industries, the chapter is one the most diverse in the world and has one of the highest percentages of female executives. Membership in the organization has a number of benefits, from a global networking forum to a variety of educational programs.
Education is key to the YPO mission of continual, practical improvement for business leaders, executives, and their families. Thanks to long-standing relationships with top business schools around the world, members can attend educational events hosted by institutions like the Aspen Institute and the London Business School, among others. The YPO also offers global conference calls, which provide the educational benefits of expert talks without having to travel to attend them.
