The Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce Daniel H. Burnham Award for Distinguished Leadership is meant to pay tribute to prominent business leaders who “Make No Little Plans,” embrace civic service and promote Chicago’s business community. Previous honorees include our city’s dreamers, architects, and planners that have built a smarter, stronger, and more inclusive city, and this year’s recipient stands among the best as we face the greatest health crisis in generations.

On November 12, we were pleased to present this prestigious honor to Maurice Smith, President & CEO of Health Care Service Corporation.

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 29th 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.
