President's Message | February 2015

The 2015 Legislative Session has officially kicked off and your Chamber has already begun supporting our members and serving as the voice of business. Our Executive Officer, Miles Yoshioka, visited our legislators at the State Capitol during the Chamber of Commerce of Hawai‘i Legislative Walk Around and meet and greet event on January 22nd. He and other Chamber of Commerce leaders and business people toured the Capitol and met with a number of legislators and staffers spreading the message about small business and asking for support for our initiatives. Miles mentioned, “The Walk Around was a great opportunity to meet with legislators from around our State who we typically don’t get to meet.
