Dan Sweat Award
Given in memory of Dan Sweat, past CAP President, who led the organization and Downtown Atlanta through very tumultuous times in the business and political environment of this City's growth. The award, designed to honor his heritage and accomplishments, is given to business and/or organizational leaders who have exhibited those traits and become quiet, effective leaders beyond the scope of their positions in the community.

Turner Downtown Community Leadership Award Winner
Started in 2003, the award was designed to recognize those in our community who as individual private citizens step forward and do good works on Downtown's behalf. Recipients of this award rarely ever show up on the normal radar screen in the corporate and organizational leadership world. But just because they are out of sight, does not mean the value of service and dedication is any less. In some cases, acting as private individuals, supporting causes without the backing of corporate budgets, may be a more formidable task making successes at this level even more note worthy.
