Chamber to honor Mayor Tom Menino and Jack Connors at Centennial Celebration

On May 19 the Chamber will host our Centennial Celebration - our 100th Annual Meeting and Dinner.

This extraordinary evening will be dedicated to leadership. As part of this celebration, we will present Jack Connors and Mayor Thomas M. Menino with the Chamber’s Centennial Award. For nearly two decades they have worked together to make Greater Boston a better place to live and work. They have played a defining role in our region, and will continue to guide our future.

Mayor Thomas M. Menino is the longest serving mayor in Boston’s illustrious history, and continues to be a champion for the neighborhoods he serves. Since his election in 1993, Menino has also been a strong advocate for the business community, providing critical leadership through periods of financial growth as well as slowdowns. He continues to prioritize education, affordable housing, public safety, health care, and neighborhood revitalization – all issues that are extremely important to the business community. Menino served his neighborhood of Hyde Park as a city councilor for nine years prior to becoming mayor.

Jack Connors is a founding partner and chairman emeritus of Hill, Holliday, Connors, Cosmopulos, Inc. Under his leadership, Hill, Holliday evolved from a one-room shop to one of the top 20 advertising firms in the U.S. Boston Magazine named him one of the most powerful people in Boston, and he’s been a major force behind initiatives such as Camp Harbor View, The Campaign for Catholic Schools, and The Edward M. Kennedy Institute. Connors is a strong advocate for Boston’s world-class hospitals, and serves as chair of Partners HealthCare, one of the nation’s leading hospital systems and the largest private employer in Massachusetts.

We hope you will join us for this remarkable evening, as we pay tribute to the powerful legacy of the Chamber’s past and lay the groundwork for developing the leaders of our future.
