Waddell, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of The Northern Trust Company. Rick Waddell embodies everything the Chamber looks for in a Burnham Award honoree. His commitment to philanthropy, volunteerism, and corporate social responsibility and his support of Chicago's many diverse communities truly represents Daniel Burnham's "make no little plans" vision. The Daniel H.

In the true spirit of Daniel Burnham's vision of "make no little plans," proceeds from this dinner benefit the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce Foundation, a 501(c)(3) supporting organization of the Chicagoland Chamber. Currently housing the Chicagoland Business Leadership Network (CBLN) and operating an internship program that pairs STEM students with small businesses, the Chamber Foundation exists to enhance the region's economic prosperity by funding workforce development initiatives and educational programs for companies of all sizes
