What does it mean to be affiliated with YNPN National?

A:

For many years our network has been united by a shared brand and shared values. As our network has grown, our needs for infrastructure and strong network connections have grown with it. The Chapter Operating System addresses these needs and allows us to invest in shared infrastructure, strengthen network connections, and provide chapters with improved support and services.

The affiliation agreements that we ask chapters to sign:

  • Lays out basic policies and practices that National and Chapters will be held accountable to.

  • Creates an official relationship between National and Chapters that allows us to leverage our collective bargaining for services such umbrella insurance.

  • Also creates clear delineations between Chapters and National to help protect members of the network from liability.
