Learn what makes Downtown Denver thrive at the Partnership’s Annual Meeting

About the Annual Meeting

The Annual Meeting, presented by Grant Thornton, is a way for Downtown Denver Partnership members, elected officials and other City leaders to gain a unique perspective on the things that make our urban center thrive. At this annual breakfast, we recognize the achievements made in the past year as well as announce the projects and initiatives that will continue to build our city over the coming years. It is also a time for the Partnership to introduce the new board officers and to honor our Volunteer Partners of the Year, as well as one member who will receive special recognition as an Honorary Partner.

Request for Nomination:

Nominations for the Downtown Denver Partnership Volunteer and Honorary Partners of the Year are now closed for 2013.


Each year, members of the Partnership volunteer their time, energy and creative and professional talents to make Downtown Denver a better place to work, live and play. Our members devote countless hours to serve on committees, champion important Downtown issues and causes, coordinate events and donate their business expertise and resources to further the positive growth and development of our Downtown community.

Volunteer Partner of the Year: These notable volunteers must have made a special contribution during the period of July 1, 2012–June 30, 2013. Nominations are open to all Partnership members, not just board members or committee chairs. The nominee must have participated in and contributed significantly to the success of a Partnership program or project in one or more of the following areas: Advocacy, Marketing, Public Relations, Transportation Management, Economic Development, Housing, Festival and Events.

Honorary Partner Award: The Partnership established the Honorary Partner Award in 1995 to recognize individuals who have demonstrated exceptional long-term commitment to Downtown Denver and the Downtown Denver Partnership. Nominees for the Honorary Partner Award must have been associated with the Partnership for a minimum of 10 years and have made contributions to the vibrancy, diversity and uniqueness of Downtown Denver by participating on various committees, task forces and projects. Honorary Partners also can be nominated for their extraordinary contributions to the field of urban planning and development in Downtown.


To encourage our members to nominate one or more of their peers who are deserving of one of these awards. There is no limit to the number of nominations made by an individual or organization. Self-nominations are welcome.
