We are an active part of the communities we serve because they are the places we call home. The members we serve live, work and play in the lush rolling hills of northeastern Oklahoma.

Headquartered in Collinsville, Oklahoma, VVEC is a distribution electric cooperative.

Among the 26 electric cooperatives operating in Oklahoma, VVEC is the third largest based on the number of meters served by the co-op. Ninety-two employees cover the Cooperative’s more than 3,200-square mile service territory daily maintaining the electric system and providing consumer-oriented service.


Rachel & Dr. Heng Lim and Ernie Davis
2010 Collinsville Chamber of Commerce Officers were sworn in Saturday. L-R: Jim Dolton (Vice- President), Traci Conley (President-Elect), and Ernie Davis (President). Secretary-Treasurer Billie Francis was not present. Ernie Davis continues as President in 2010 after stepping up to complete the 2009 term of Cory Slagle who moved to Texas mid-term.
Nichole Landrum was voted by the Chamber members as the Member of the Year for her significant contributions to the Chamber in 2009. The most notable efforts included her organization of the Family Fun Day, Merchant Giveaway, and Christmas Parade.
Ernie Davis in his Presidental acceptance speech indicated the Chamber should do more to promote Collinsville and fundraisers would be necessary to make that happen. He also requested input and feedback from the merchants and community.
Dr. Heng Lim used humor addressing the Chamber before moving into the serious message of his struggles as a teenager in Communist ruled Cambodia before escaping to the United States in 1981 at age 19. He arrived with no resources other than opportunity, determination and faith. He reminds all Americans to remember the price of freedom and be responsible citizens.
