INDIANAPOLIS -

The Indiana Chamber of Commerce Foundation has named Marci Price its new executive director. Price previously worked at Northwestern University and United Way of Central Indiana.

Price was responsible for grant acquisition and strategic partnerships with local and national foundations while at United Way of Central Indiana. Indiana Chamber President Kevin Brinegar says, “What really impressed us is Marci’s vast fundraising experience and specifically her grant management, corporate relations and partnership development strengths. She also will play a critical role in the recently announced Indiana Workforce Ready initiative to assist employers and employees impacted by the opioid epidemic.”

Price's first day at the Foundation was February 26.

The Chamber also announced that Janet Boston will retire at the end of May. Boston is executive director of Indiana INTERnet, the statewide resource for internships managed by the Indiana Chamber. She has been in the position since February 2011.
