2019 marks yet another year of prosperity and accomplishments for the Greater Green Bay Chamber, our members and our community.
Since its founding in 1882, the Chamber has continued to support and advocate for local businesses and economic and workforce development for the Greater Green Bay area. Each year at the Chamber Annual Dinner we recognize several award recipients and learn from the evening's keynote speaker about how to continue growing a prosperous Greater Green Bay.
In addition to hearing from inspiring keynote speaker Daniel “Rudy” Ruettiger, The Chamber will honor our award recipients with the Outgoing Board Chairman, ATHENA Award, Daniel Whitney Award and Ambassador of the Year at this year’s annual dinner.
The ATHENA Award presented annually to individuals who have demonstrated outstanding commitment to their profession, to the advancement of women and to serving their community. Award recipients are chosen by previous recipients in the community.
The Daniel Whitney Award is given to individuals who have served on one or more of the Chamber’s committees and has demonstrated outstanding volunteerism. This is the only award that is voted on by Chamber staff.

"It's always too soon to quit."
“Your life becomes the result of your thought.”
“It’s not where you start. It’s where you end up.”
“The best way to predict the future is
to create it.” - Rudy Ruettiger
The son of an oil refinery worker and third of 14 children, Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger rose from valleys of discouragement and despair to the pinnacles of success. It took years of fierce determination to overcome obstacles and criticisms, yet Rudy achieved his first dream: to attend Notre Dame and play football for the Fighting Irish.
Against all odds on a gridiron in South Bend, Ind., in 27 seconds he carved his name into history books as perhaps the most famous graduate of the university. Today he is one of the most popular motivational speakers in the United States.
