PROBUS History

What is PROBUS Global?

We are a worldwide community of seniors interested in stimulating online conversations. The International PROBUS Network (IPN) has been connecting PROBUS members since 1996.

In 2018 a group of IPN members began work on the PROBUS Global initiative to increase membership and promote PROBUS growth through new clubs and interclub communications to exchange ideas.
