Aloha Fellow Members,
I continue to be reminded that the Big Island’s West Hawai‘i is a vibrant community and much has been accomplished these last two years:
These accomplishments are only possible through the teamwork of the Kona-Kohala Chamber of Commerce and the many partners that sit alongside us to improve the West Hawai‘i business climate.
I would like to thank my fellow Board members, who volunteered their time, expertise and resources to further the mission of the Chamber. The last two years as the Board Chair have broadened my perspective on the opportunities and challenges of doing business in West Hawai‘i. One thing is clear; it definitely takes a village and I invite you to engage with the Chamber and continue to help make West Hawai‘i a great place to work, play and live.
Here are some upcoming opportunities:
Wed., June 21 June AfterHours at Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore. Network and learn what projects Habitat West Hawaii has coming up.
Fri., June 30 Annual Membership & Installation Luncheon with keynote speaker, Gov. David Ige at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai. We will also present the Pualu Awards and 2017 Small Business Awards and install our board for 2017-2018.
Sun., Sept. 10 HIPlan Business Plan Competition. Top Prize $25,000 to Hawai‘i Island’s best business plan.
It has been an honor to serve as the Chair of the Chamber’s Board and I look forward to seeing you at our next event!
Dale Suezaki, Board Chair
Kona-Kohala Chamber of Commerce
