Event FAQ

Who is eligible to attend an event?

That depends on the type of event! Detailed information is provided in each invitation, but many events are open only to YPFP members. Apply for membership.

May I bring a guest?

Space permitting, members may bring a guest to select events. If the invitation does not specify, please email events@ypfp.org to inquire whether a guest is permitted. When requesting to bring a guest, please provide his or her name, affiliation, and email address so that we may confirm with him or her directly.

What is your policy for event attendance?

To ensure that we continue to deliver the highest quality events to our members, YPFP has several standing policies. All of our speaker events require business attire. We ask members who RSVP to make every effort to attend because event space is often limited, and events are in high demand. If you RSVP but are unable to come, cancel your registration on the YPFP website as soon as possible. Thank you for helping us continue to offer you quality programming and top-notch speakers.

How do I suggest a speaker?

We would love to hear your speaker suggestion for a senior official or expert with whom you have a personal connection or a deep interest in hearing. YPFP Programming and Events has an extensive list of individuals who are lined up to speak, have been invited to address a group of Members, or who are on a list for future considerations at our primary locations around the world. Owing to the large number of suggestions, we are not able to issue invitations to all suggested speakers, but we do endeavor to provide diverse and well-balanced events. Please complete the Suggest a Speaker form. We greatly look forward to your suggestions.

How can I suggest an event space or venue?

YPFP relies on venue space donations to continue offering exciting events in various locations around the city. If you are in a position to donate space or resources, please email events@ypfp.org.

How can I get involved with YPFP Programming and Events?

We are seeking talented individuals with event planning experience, but are also interested in people who simply want to get involved! To join the Programming Staff, please email recruiting@ypfp.org with your area of interest and a resume.

What if my question still hasn’t been answered? Where can I write to a real, live person?

Members of the YPFP Programming Team are always happy to chat. Email us at events@ypfp.org and we will do our best to answer your questions.
