In addition, an application review process ensures that only the highest caliber professionals are accepted.
Members, who are hand-selected by their respective Forbes Council’s community team, become part of a curated network of successful peers to whom they can connect in a variety of ways, from conversations in the Council’s 24/7 online member forums to warm introductions from a dedicated member concierge team. Forbes Council’s member concierge team proactively connects members with a variety of exclusive benefits and resources, including the opportunity to submit original business articles and short tips on industry-related topics for publishing on Forbes.com (professionally edited by Forbes Council’s in-house editorial staff); business services partners; peer-to-peer learning and educational content; access to exclusive Forbes Council-only VIP experiences; and Forbes Council- branded marketing collateral to display online and on location.
“I am honored to be joining Forbes Chicago Business Council, a select community of distinguished business leaders committed to excellence and innovation in their respective industries,” says Camargo. “I am looking forward to working alongside these successful business leaders, learn from one another, and collectively grow our organizations, contribute to our communities in meaningful ways, and continue raising the stature of Chicago as global city.”
