About Us

Steve Matheny


I would like to invite you to become a member of the Granville Area Chamber of Commerce. The reason to be a member is as true today as it was at our organization’s inception in 1929: “to establish a close relationship with one another for the purpose of furthering business prosperity, the public welfare of the community and a feeling of mutual good fellowship among them." Let’s discuss how being a member can benefit you and your business. Contact me or stop by the office for a visit. I look forward to seeing you.

Best Regards,

Steve Matheny, Executive Director
