Mark your calendars! The 2022 Annual Celebration will be held in person on the evening of Monday, November 7, 2022, at the newly-opened Omni Boston Hotel at the Seaport. We are very much looking forward to gathering with our members at this beautiful new venue to celebrate our 2022 New Englanders of the Year. Stay tuned for announcements about this year’s honorees in the coming months!
Traditionally held each fall in Boston, the Annual Celebration brings together hundreds of business, non-profit, and academic leaders from throughout New England to celebrate the Council’s accomplishments, and to present the New Englander of the Year Award. In 2020 and 2021, the Annual Celebration was presented as a virtual program due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
About the New Englander of the Year Award
The highlight of each year’s Annual Dinner is the presentation of the prestigious “New Englander of the Year” awards. First presented nearly 60 years ago, the award honors residents or natives of the New England states for their commitment and contributions in their fields of work, as well as their leadership and impact on the New England region’s quality of life and economy. Over the years, the Council has honored leaders from both the public and private sectors, including U.S. Senators and Representatives, Governors, cabinet secretaries, college presidents, non-profit executives, and CEOs of some of the region’s most respected and successful businesses.
