• What is Member Spotlight? 

    Member Spotlight is a free Kona-Kohala Chamber member promotional opportunity that helps members expand reach in West Hawaii's business community. Members are asked to submit a press release and image that will be posted to our website's newsfeed and sent as an announcement to the Chamber membership by email and posted to the Chamber social media.
