Nominate a Citizen of the Year for Greater Manchester
Leadership. Kindness. Commitment. Passion. Excellence.
These words describe the 67 past Citizens of the Year that have been awarded by the GMC since 1954. Each year, the Chamber’s Annual Dinner and Citizen of the Year Celebration honors the ideals of leadership, civic engagement, and philanthropy through the Citizen of the Year Award. Save the date for our next celebration in June of 2022!
Our Past Citizens of the Year represent some of the most important leaders who have shaped and guided our community for the better. Our 2020 Citizen of the Year, Anna Thomas, lives these ideals each day and serves as a pillar of the greater Manchester community, and the Chamber, through her service and dedication.
After 67 years celebrating this award, it is still as important to today as it was in 1954.
Now the time is here – who will be the next Citizen of the Year?
