President’s Message

Aloha Chamber members,

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are ready for the Holiday Season! 

As mentioned last week, the Chamber is moving its office after 20+ years. Effective December 1, our new office location will be:
Pacific Guardian Center
733 Bishop Street
Makai Tower, Suite 1200
Honolulu, HI 96813
The move signifies a new chapter in the Chamber’s 168-year history, which will allow us to Raise the Bar and prepare for organizational growth and new initiatives. With the move, communication may be sporadic starting this Thursday through Monday. Office operations will be back to normal on Tuesday, December 4.
Check out our new office at our open house on January 15, 4:00 – 6:00 PM during Chamber Week!
Also, time is running out to sign up for our Chamber of the Year & Holiday Party at the spectacular Halekulani Hotel on December 7. We look forward to seeing you there!
