Whether spending a couple of weeks, months, or relocating to SWFL, YPO Southwest Florida is a great opportunity to become part of the Naples and Southwest Florida YPO community. We welcome the opportunity to greet new members share great times, share our experience of how to quickly acclimate, and develop new friendships and experiences with you! And there is a good chance you will reconnect with some “old” YPO friends.

We offer monthly Chapter events from November to April, taking advantage of beautiful Southwest Florida. We get out into the swamps, on the water and golf courses, into the penthouses and behind the scenes of coveted centers of culture, entertainment, and business. The Naples area possesses one of the world's most affluent population, with many titans of industry who have chosen to retire here. Many are in our Chapter! This allows us access to exclusive and interesting resources and exciting venues to connect and learn.

Notable Past Events

Monthly Members Only Luncheon

Each month, we hold a member only luncheon, where a member or two presents to the group. It may be about their business career, or a passion they have. It’s a chance to get to know fellow members on a more intimate basis, in a forumlike environment.

“I moved my residence and business to Naples Florida in 2005 after spending 14 amazing years in the YPO Cincinnati Chapter. I never thought it would be possible to duplicate the YPO experience, which had been so instrumental in helping me build my 100 year old family business. I was pleasantly surprised to find YPO Southwest Florida Gold setting the bar high in providing an amazing YPO education program. The networking opportunities provided by the diverse geographic nature of the membership has taken my YPO experience to the next level.”
Mike and Karen Korchmar, Korchmar, The Leather Specialty Co., YPO Gold Cincinnati, Ohio & YPO SWFL Gold, Members since 2005

“Joining YPO SWFL Gold has been incredibly enriching. The fast growing, diverse membership has offered Chris and I the opportunity for new friendships every year. The member driven programs address our interests and needs, including family health decisions, and topics of the day, while additional programs allow members to share their life’s journey (which we have found especially interesting). The numerous types of forums have enhanced the bond of the friendships we have made.”
