The Bombay Chapter has evolved robustly in its 24 year history

  • 1978-79 – Inception with 7-8 members

    – Grown to 98 members

    – Evolved from “forum” atmosphere to structured chapter

  • 1981 – 1st Area Conference

  • 1986 – YPO India University was rated one of the

    “10 Best YPO Events held till that date”

  • 1996 – 1st constitution developed - continuously updated for new best practices

  • Member involvement and commitment very high :

    – 80% in forums

    – Participation in YPO Governance at Regional and International level

    – Won various Chapter awards in last 5-6 years


It is now in the prime stage of its life cycle

  • The Chapter health is ensured by selecting its membership based on:

  • – quality of individuals

  • – diversity of professions, cultures, gender

  • – balance of age profile

  • So how do we do it ?

The Chapter places special emphasis on post-selection member integration

On receipt of dues and documents

Forum participation after membership registration completed by chapter and YPO International

Membership confirmed once all paperwork OK & YPO

International accepts

Formal introduction to chapter members at next event

Sponsor couple and membership chair to mentor new members to attend events, integrate into chapter

Forum Chairman to encourage both member and

spouse to join a forum

Education Chairman to encourage new members to give vote of thanks / day chair

New Members must attend 70% of the events in their 1st year of joining


More emphasis on demographics needed

Target size needs pre-planning

Recruitment to emphasize size and demographics

Importance of the CV form

Don’t invite potentials to events prematurely

No cocktails prior to interview

“Old boys club” syndrome

Resisting lobbying and peer pressure for new members from existing members

Delivering rejections to peers / friends

Improving demographics particularly gender ratio

Building a strong quality membership has its lessons and challenges
