IBJ Podcast: Indy Chamber’s shift in focus pays dividends

Indy Chamber last month was recognized by its peers for work it has been doing that’s not quite typical of chambers of commerce nationwide.

The group won the 2021 Chamber of the Year award from an association that represents 1,600 chambers and economic development organizations. And it earned the honor for the work it has done on inclusive growth—primarily a rework of the city’s economic incentives program—and for the Rapid Response Hub it deployed during the pandemic.

Guest host Lesley Weidenbener interviews Indy Chamber CEO Michael Huber and the group’s director of economic development, Vincent Ash, about the programs and the honor.
