Membership Benefits

Your membership in the Grandview Area Chamber is highly valued. Without it, the Chamber could not offer the range of services that it does, or hope to expand them. As a Chamber member, benefits include:

Casual Networking

  • SECOND THURSDAYS: Monthly member luncheons with interesting guest speakers. Always fun, informative and a great place to meet new people and prospects.
  • SCHMOOZA-PALOOZA: (aka Business After Hours)-We changed the name because after a day of working, it’s time to lighten up, get acquainted and enjoy complimentary appetizers.

Volunteer Energy Savings

The Grandview Chamber of Commerce is pleased to offer its members a new program that provides a discount on the cost of their electricity. Chamber members who are business customers of AEP’s Columbus Southern Power can now switch to a lower rate.

Offered by local energy supplier Volunteer Energy through an exclusive arrangement with FirstEnergy Solutions, Chamber members can save up to 30% or more on the cost of their electricity supply. The billing and service remains the same with one monthly bill still provided by AEP. This new discounted rate is good through May 2013 and will not go up during that time, even if AEP rates increase.

Various pricing options are provided for small, medium, and large electricity users. Enrolling with FirstEnergy Solutions through Volunteer Energy for electricity supply is as easy as filling out a simple form:

AEP Columbus Southern Power Territory Enrollment Form. Return completed forms via fax to 614.889.6129 or email to chamberchoice@volunteerenergy.com.
