History

The Daniel H. Burnham Award was created by the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors to pay tribute to a prominent business leader, not only for their influence in advancing the Chicagoland business climate, but also for their tremendous civic contributions helping to make this city a better place to both work and live. This year marks the 28th anniversary of the Burnham Award and shines a light on the importance of civic involvement and is a reminder of how Chicago thrives with a fully engaged business community.
