Save BIG with the Chamber
As the largest and only regional business membership organization in the Cincinnati USA region, the Chamber is able to leverage the size of our membership to negotiate significant savings for you.
In fact, the Chamber’s eight cost saving programs saved Chamber members more than $80 million last year. But do you know every way the Chamber can save you and your business money? Take a look and start saving today.
Electricity Savings Program through the Chamber
We heard that our members needed more ways to save money on everyday costs, and we reacted. Introducing the Chamber Electricity Savings Program, a program that brings almost 5,000 members together to assess electricity usage and group them in a way that saves our members 20-30 percent on their electricity costs.
Details about deregulation which has made these savings available to businesses are available online, including our most frequently asked questions. You can even calculate your potential savings. For more information, go to cincinnatichamber.com/electricity or call 513.696.9855.
Workers’ Comp Group Rating through Sheakley
Members can take advantage of the largest group-rating program in Southwest Ohio (over 4,700 companies). Participants benefit from Sheakley’s 40-plus years of experience of claims management through a program that averages savings of $16,000 per participant.
Health Care Insurance through Humana
Current participants are saving an average of more than $1,500 through ChamberHealth. Humana offers members savings of up to three percent on all plans for companies with 2-99 employees as well as discounts on dental, life, vision and wellness programs.
