How is an individual selected for candidacy?

The Cambridge Who's Who Marketing and Research Department seeks out accomplished individuals who would benefit most from our networking and branding resources. These are people who we identify as being on a path to future success either because of their past accomplishments, status in their field or their credentials. We use a variety of resources to identify Cambridge Who's Who candidates. Individuals who are affiliated with professional associations and societies, attend core events within their field or subscribe to certain periodicals are ideal candidates, as this demonstrates that they have sought enrichment within their career fields and participate in activities that extend beyond the workplace. These are the executives, professionals and entrepreneurs who we actively seek out and select as candidates for inclusion in Cambridge Who's Who.

In addition, the 400,000 active members of Cambridge Who's Who have the ability to nominate peers, colleagues, mentors and associates for Cambridge Who's Who membership. Nominating others is a privilege reserved exclusively for our members.

a. Who nominated me?
Unless we indicate that you were nominated by a Cambridge Who's Who member, you were not nominated, but selected by our Marketing and Research Department.
