MWA Chairman Frank Amerson was selected as the Citizen of the Year during the recent Annual Meeting of the Greater Macon Chamber of Commerce.

Congratulations are due for MWA Chairman Frank C. Amerson, Jr. for receiving the Citizen of the Year Award from the Greater Macon Chamber of Commerce during its 151st Annual Meeting.

Mr. Amerson has an impressive resume as a community leader in economic development, as well as being respected for his leadership and vision as MWA Chairman. He has been instrumental in expanding system capacity to accommodate quality growth, as well as planning the construction of the reservoir and the water treatment plant, the majority of which was financed with federal funding that he helped to secure.

In 2009, he received the Chamber’s Economic Development Lifetime Achievement Award, at which time the Authority also received an Economic Development Champion Award.

Frank Amerson joined the Macon Water Authority in 1976. As a testament to his life-long commitment to the Authority and community, the MWA’s water treatment plant and the community’s Water Works Park both bear his name.

Mr. Amerson’s public service, in addition to being elected county-wide as Chairman of the MWA over the past 35 years, includes previous service on the State Board of Industry and Trade, which is now referred to as the Georgia Department of Economic Development.

Currently, in addition to his role as Chairman of the MWA, he serves on the Boards of the Macon-Bibb County Industrial Authority and the Macon Economic Development Commission.
