I first became a Chamber member in 2018 and enjoy the opportunity to build connection with community so much. Opportunity is at the foundation of business, whether for-profit or not-for-profit and the Hawaii Island Chamber of Commerce provides multiple opportunities through committee membership, event engagement, learning sessions, and fellowship to help support the economy and community on Hawaii Island.

The most significant benefit that I get out of my membership is the vast number of connections and people that I’ve met. It’s so exciting for me to meet new people, to get to know them, and learn a little about themselves and the companies they represent.
–Rhea Lee-Moku, Individual Member, HICC Director and 2019-2020 President
The Hawai`i Island Chamber of Commerce was very helpful to my business. They helped me connect with others through the networking events they put together. These networking events gave me an opportunity to connect with other business professionals and through these conversations, I was able to learn important business lessons, advice, and ideas that helped my business throughout the years.

Chamber membership gives you a good idea of what’s in the community and who you can reach out to if you have any specific questions regarding different businesses or industries.
