Most members join PROBUS Global in order to widen their circle of friendships. With that in mind, PROBUS Global tries to help members connect with each other.
PROBUS Global grew out of the IPN (International PROBUS Network), a group of PROBUS club members who formed friendships online and offline since 1996. Shirley Roberts reminisces about some of those friendships in her blog article.
One on one or in small groups, video chat using Skype, Face Time, Google Meet, Facebook Messenger or another platform is all the rage right now.

Email conversations, one on one, or in small groups are a great way to turn acquaintances into lifelong friends. Some of us still call these friends penpals, although pens are seldom used nowadays.
If you are looking for a new friend or a small group to chat with by email, please add yourself to the PENPAL List.
PROBUS Global is now hosting Zoom meetings about once a quarter. The main event has been a presentation about PROBUS from a representative of a country: Canada, by former PROBUS Canada President, Richard Furlong. Australia, by PSPL CEO, Silvana Martignago. India, by Hyderabad PROBUS President, Ram Mukherjee.
Before and after the main event, there have been discussions among the particpants from around the world.
