Forbes Councils Members Enjoy These Exclusive Benefits

Get published on Forbes.com

Members are selected for Forbes Councils based on their depth and diversity of experience, then invited to share their insights via CommunityVoice on Forbes.com. Write business articles or submit short industry-related tips when you’re short on time. Our in-house editorial team will guide you through a professional editing process to ensure your content meets the Forbes.com criteria and is primed for audience engagement.

Knowledge sharing and professional connections

Get transformative insights and advice anytime in our online forums, specific to your industry or region of operations. You’ll have the opportunity to collaborate and solve challenges with leading peers, all in a professionally managed experience. Select councils also enjoy the chance to connect at expertly planned in-person events.

Branding and marketing collateral

After you join, our concierge team will provide web badges, decals, press release templates and blog posts that you can use to share your affiliation with the community at your location, on social media, and in your newsletters and websites. You can use these materials to build credibility with potential customers, hires, partners and investors.

Dedicated concierge team

At the core of everything we do is our member concierge team. These service-oriented individuals are committed to connecting you to the right people and resources at the right time — which is why you should consider them an extension of your own team.

Discounts on select business service and travel partners

We’ve curated members-only rates from highly valued service providers that help you intelligently build your business, such as software, insurance, and back office support. In our travel and entertainment portal, you’ll also find exclusive deals you can use for professional opportunities or personal enjoyment.

Single sign-on benefits dashboard

Members-only web and mobile dashboards help you stay connected to the community and our team. Request introductions to fellow members and enjoy on-demand access to your member benefits anytime, anywhere. You can even live chat with a member concierge right from the dashboard.

Behind each of the world’s most successful business owners and leaders is a strong community of support.

This Is Our Story

Forbes, one of the most iconic media companies in the world, and the team behind YEC, a world-class entrepreneurship organization, have partnered to create a new kind of professional community — Forbes Councils.

Our team spent years talking to top professionals about what was working, and what was broken, in their business relationships and communities. What we found was an industry in need of a major update — one stuck in the trading-business-cards age of networking, offering little more than superficial relationships and benefits.

So we set out to create something different. Leaning on YEC’s deep understanding of community building and Forbes’ global reach and resources, we’ve created a space for exceptional business owners and leaders to come together with the people and resources that can help them thrive.

Through our selection process, we recruit and invite members not just on the basis of career success, but on their diversity of perspective and willingness to give as much as they gain. We bring these members together in communities tailored to their industry or region so that they can connect with others best positioned to help them overcome challenges and create new opportunities.

Finally, we provide members with a growing list of support benefits that help them save time and money, and a platform, CommunityVoice on Forbes.com, through which they can amplify their voices and exchange ideas.

At Forbes Councils, we believe that behind each of the world’s most successful business owners and leaders is a strong community of support. Find yours in a Forbes Council today.
