  3. How is an individual selected for candidacy?
    The Cambridge Who's Who Marketing and Research Department looks for accomplished individuals who would benefit most from our networking resources. These are people who we feel are 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 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 the Cambridge Who's Who Registry.

    In addition, the 400,000 active members of Cambridge Who's Who among Executives, Professionals and Entrepreneurs 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.
