Forbes Nonprofit Council Is an Invitation-Only Community for Chief Executives in Successful Nonprofit Organizations

Ms. Frances R. Arias, Director of Operations, has been accepted into Forbes Nonprofit Council, an invitation-only community for chief executives in successful nonprofit organizations.

Frances was vetted and selected by a review committee based on the depth and diversity of her experience. Criteria for acceptance include a track record of successfully impacting business growth metrics, as well as personal and professional achievements and honors.

“We are honored to welcome Frances into the community,” said Scott Gerber, founder of Forbes Councils, the collective that includes Forbes Nonprofit Council. “Our mission with Forbes Councils is to bring together proven leaders from every industry, creating a curated, social capital-driven network that helps every member grow professionally and make an even greater impact on the business world.”

As an accepted member of the Council, Frances has access to a variety of exclusive opportunities designed to help her reach peak professional influence. She will connect and collaborate with other respected local leaders in a private forum. Frances will also be invited to work with a professional editorial team to share her expert insights in original business articles on Forbes.com, and to contribute to published Q&A panels alongside other experts.

Finally, Frances will benefit from exclusive access to vetted business service partners, membership-branded marketing collateral, and the high-touch support of the Forbes Councils’ member concierge team.

“This is a very proud and humbling moment for me and our team at the Green Beret Foundation to be invited as a member of the Forbes Nonprofit Council. Advocating for military, veteran, and military family issues have been important and personal for me. As a military spouse, I’ve seen firsthand the good, the bad, and the ugly of deployments, training cycles, military life, and life after service. It has been my greatest honor to serve the U.S. Army Special Forces Regiment and its families.”

The U.S. Army Special Forces Regiment, or Green Berets as they are commonly known, and its families have borne an incredible burden the last 19 years since the start of combat operations following the attacks of September 11th, 2001. Green Berets were the first in to Afghanistan in October 2001 and their operational tempo has not slowed. The heavy burden of multiple deployments on their physical and mental health, as well as the toll of the burden placed on our community’s families and caregivers own physical and mental health, is unprecedented. Our mission continues to serve our beloved Regiment. I am very honored, humbled, and grateful to be invited to join the Forbes Nonprofit Council and to further the Green Beret Foundation’s mission serving as the premier organization supporting the Special Forces community.”


Forbes Councils is a collective of invitation-only communities created in partnership with Forbes and the expert community builders who founded Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC).
