Chicago, IL, February 2019 (HINA) – Negocios Now is calling for nominations for the 6th Annual Who’s Who in Hispanic Chicago Special Edition, which will be announced on July 12, during a special gala event to celebrate Chicago’s Hispanic leadership.

The deadline for submissions is May 15. A selection committee will review the nominations and make the final decision regarding recipients and the selected individuals will be notified via email.

Candidates will come from a variety of sectors including, entrepreneurs, corporate leaders, members of the legal field, realtors, local government, education and healthcare.

“Twelve years ago, I left the Chicago Tribune to create a publication focused on the growing Latino business community. This would serve as a basis to encourage them even in difficult times,” says Negocios Now’s Founder and Publisher, Clemente Nicado. “These days, Negocios Now has gone even further in its eagerness to celebrate Latinos with the annual special edition and event that recognizes the growing community of entrepreneurs and business leaders.

Since 2014, Who’s Who of Hispanic Chicago’s distinguished award categories have included: Business of the Year, the Community Champion Award, Latinas in Business Award and Lifetime Achievement Award, along with a special recognition for a corporation that has shown commitment to the Hispanic community. The publication will begin notifying selected individuals in the weeks to come.

“We are fortunate to profile and cover the growing Latino business community. Hispanic leaders in Chicago have supported Negocios Now every step of the way and they have given us the privilege to lend a hand and encourage other small businesses to keep moving forward,” Nicado said.

Sold out over the past 4 years, Who’s Who in Hispanic Chicago offers a unique event to the City of Chicago, in order to recognize over 100 leaders from different areas.
