Success Starts Here:
The mission of the Grandview Area Chamber is to promote and support an environment for the development, growth and success of the area’s business community.
With more than 60 years as an integral part of the Grandview and Marble Cliff area community, the Grandview Area Chamber is a volunteer-driven organization of area business leaders, each of whom serves the community in a variety of ways, but all of whom are dedicated to a singular purpose – the success of the business community.
Member businesses make the most of their Chamber membership by taking advantage of numerous networking and advertising opportunities, including monthly luncheons, Business After Hours functions, directory advertising, e-mail advertising, newsletter articles and inserts, and mailing lists. In addition, members can serve on committees of their choosing.
The Chamber of Commerce is often the first resource for community members looking for referrals for products and services. If you are interested in finding out what the Chamber can offer your business as a member, please Contact Us. We’ll be happy to assist you!
Then and Now
Today’s Grandview Area Chamber is your front door to Connections in Commerce. Officially known as the Grandview/Marble Cliff Area Chamber of Commerce, the Grandview Area Chamber was founded in 1946 as the “Grandview Area Business Association”. Its 26 founding members were an active and positive business force in the community. The first business association undertook some ambitious projects that still benefit the community: the Shelter House at Wyman Woods, street signs, and the first lights on First and Grandview Avenues. This founding group was also responsible for starting the annual Steak Fry, which has now been combined with a Golf Outing.
By the early 1980s, membership had grown to over 100, and six years later, in 1986, the Association voted to reorganize as a chamber of commerce, with financial support from the City of Grandview Heights and the Village of Marble Cliff and an office in the Grandview Municipal Building. The Chamber’s office eventually moved to 1492 King Avenue, and then to the lower level of 1258 Grandview Avenue, in the heart of downtown Grandview Heights. Now the Chamber lives at 1305 Holly Avenue.
Throughout the changes, the Chamber has continued to promote and encourage the business and professional interests in the Grandview Heights and Marble Cliff areas. The Chamber, City government, and the school district have worked together to provide communication and direction as our area continues to develop. In addition, partnerships with new civic players such as the Art Hop and the Fifth by Northwest Area Commission have created additional opportunities for continuing to enhance the community.
The Chamber’s growth is due to a number of factors: desirable member benefits Member Benefits that help business owners enjoy group savings, and a staff and involved Board of Directors who push the Chamber to new challenges.
