• Young Professionals Program

    The Kona-Kohala Chamber of Commerce inspires existing and future leaders to advance and grow within our community.

    Launched in 2024, a new Young Professionals (YP) Program encourages ages 21-39 to engage in new chamber activities to network, develop professionally, and serve Hawaiʻi Island.

    The Young Professionals Committee oversees the YP Program. The YP Committee Chair is Samantha Collins with the Fairmont Orchid, who serves on the KKCC Board of Directors as the Vice Chair of South Kohala. 

    2024 YP Program Activities:

    • Tree Planting Community Service - April 20th, Earth Day celebration in collaboration with Pālamanui Campus
    • AM Coffee Networking
    • Lunch & Learn

    If you are interested in joining the activities and/or the YP Committee, contact KKCC Events & Marketing Coordinator Shyla Victor at shyla@kona-kohala.com
