Twardesky, who also co-manages the Downriver Linked Greenways Initiative, received the chamber's Image Award at the group's annual member tribute held at the Downriver Italian-American Hall in Wyandotte.
The Image Award "recognizes an individual or a business that actively promotes a positive image of Southern Wayne County to both the internal and external public."
"Anita is a true champion of Downriver wherever she goes, speaking at conference across the state and nation and working to bring conferences and meetings to experience the natural and cultural assets of Downriver," the chamber said in a written statement.
