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. We provide electric service to residential, commercial and industrial consumers through more than 32,000 meters and more than 4,500 miles of electric line in portions of Nowata, Osage, Rogers, Tulsa and Washington counties.

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.

Ribbon Cutting For Creme de la Creme
The Collinsville Chamber of Commerce welcomed a new business venture with multiple shop owners in a single building. Creme de la Creme is now open at 918 W. Main. Those in the Feb. 10th ribbon cutting photo are Standing L-R: Janee Golden, Tammy Scott, Co-owners Sharon Reed and Tessa Epps, Pam Polk, Fawn Ozug, Wanda Nyburg, and Susan Babbitt. Kneeling: Ashley Ryder and Chandra Hakanson.
Collinsville Chamber of Commerce members and guests at Thursday's luncheon meet took a brief self-assessment quiz and then split pretty evenly into 4 character type groups (expressive, driver, analytical and stablizer). Guest speaker Ron Moore (from the Dale Carnegie Training organization) then highlighted ways the different types of people interact with each other in the context of how to improve your business interface with workers and customers.
Special Olympics & Post-Prom Party
Lee Ann Smith (left) and Dawn Martinez (right) from Collinsville High School spoke to the Chamber members about supporting Collinsville students via the Special Olympics and post-prom party. Only 5 of 14 special education students have been sponsored so far for the Special Olympics at Stillwater in May. The post-prom party will provide a safe (alcohol-free) environment following the April 14th CHS Prom.
