What we're about

Hear Ye Hear Ye, Calling All Turtles Far and Near R U A Turtle? Y.B.Y.S.A.I.A Looking for a few good turtles to make a few hundred good turtles. If you are interested in joining the greatest fraternity on earth then come on down to T-town and stick your neck out for a fellow turtle.


Many have seen the question “Are you a Turtle?” or you have seen YBYSAIA. But who or what are the Turtles, you ask? The “Turtles” are indeed an illustrious coed fraternal organization that includes in their membership some of the world’s foremost leaders in the fields of government, finance, entertainment, military, business, fashion, and all other areas where confidence, knowledge, clean thoughts and a sense of humor are keys to success. Started by a group of fighter pilots during WWII, the club has progressed to its present position as one whose membership is diligently sought after and highly esteemed by those lucky enough to be initiated. We are a charitable social organization where one can network and form lasting friendships with other professionals while giving back to the community. We meet once a month at a bar, restaurant or party to network & socialize. Atleast twice a year each chapter does some community service. There are over 1 million Turtles worldwide enjoying the fun and benefits of being a Turtle.
