Nominating a Citizen of the Year for Greater Manchester

2016 Citizen of the Year, Dianne Mercier

Nominating a Citizen of the Year for Greater Manchester

Leadership. Kindness. Commitment. Passion. Excellence.

These words describe the 62 past Citizens of the Year that have been awarded by the GMCC 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 on April 19, 2018!

Our Past Citizens of the Year represent some of the most important leaders who have shaped and guided our community for the better. Our 2016 Citizen of the Year, Dianne Mercier, lives these ideals each day and serves as a pillar of the greater Manchester community, and the Chamber, through her service and dedication.

After 63 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?

Nominations are now open and we encourage you to thoughtfully consider who might be a candidate for this prestigious award. Consider why your nominee is deserving, and what kind of impact they have demonstrated in the Manchester community. Speak to your colleagues and friends who know your nominee, and have them share what makes that person so special to our community. This is the chance to highlight someone who has made an impact!

In April, we look forward to this the celebration as we come together as a unified business community. Help us honor our next deserving Citizen of the Year. Save the date for April 19, and begin to prepare your nomination today.

The deadline for nominations is Friday, December 15!
