    The Kapolei Chamber continues to advocate for the business community of Kapolei. There is a bill going through the Hawaii State Legislature that will help bring more jobs to Kapolei. HB943 passed out of the House Finance Committee this week and is expected to crossover to the Senate. Click HERE to see the current status. To review HB943, click HERE

    The Kapolei Jobs Initiative Pilot Program would provide incentives for businesses to establish or open a new location in the Kapolei region, helping to reduce traffic and realize the State's long standing policy of directing growth to West Oahu. 

    Job growth in Kapolei is lagging behind population growth.  This is evident in the traffic congestion caused by the number of people who still have to commute to downtown Honolulu for work every day.   Job creation in the Kapolei region is a quality-of-life, community-building concern affecting employers and employees alike as households in the Kapolei region continue to grow exceeding the number of jobs. 

    Thank you to all who have submitted testimony on this measure. To receive notification on future hearings for this bill, click HERE or subscribe to the Kapolei Chamber's mailing list on the bottom of our home page.

    Kapolei Chamber’s Pau Hana Networking evening provided businesses the opportunity to make new business connections while visiting West Oahu’s very own community hospital. The event of this year was hosted and sponsored by Queen’s Medical Center West Oahu on Thursday, July 9, 2015.

    Kapolei Chamber Member Pohai Ryan and Executive Director of the Native Hawaiian Hospitality Association appreciates the value of networking saying, “Kapolei Chamber did a fabulous job co-hosting the networking event at Queen’s Medical Center – West.  As a former employee of Queen’s Medical Center Punchbowl, I can say that the West location is absolutely beautiful and is positively impacting  West-Oahu.  What a great resource for the health of their communities.  As usual, the networking was fruitful to our organization and we can’t wait to see what Kapolei Chamber has coming up in their next event.”

    Members were also able to meet and network with physicians, the management team and staff of Queen’s – West.  As a business in the Leeward Coast community, Queen’s – West was honored to meet with other community business owners and leaders. Many partnerships were forged.

    For the majority of the members in attendance, this was the very first time they experienced Queen’s – West.  Guided tours were given by Queen’s – West managers to learn about the history of the Queen’s mission, founders and legacy, as well as the services and programs offered at Queen’s – West.

    Since it opened its doors a little over a year ago (on May 20, 2014), Queen’s – West has served over 50,000 of their friends, family and neighbors, and has employed over 800 men and women - a large number of whom live in West Oahu. Click [here] to see learn more about Queen’s West and see a video showcasing their one-year anniversary.

    Last week’s Pau Hana Networking event is one of three networking evenings the Kapolei Chamber has on the calendar for 2015.

    SAVE THE DATE! The next ‘Networking Night’ will be on Wednesday, August 26, 2015 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. It will be a joint networking event held at the Building Institute of Hawaii (BIA) Construction Training Center of the Pacific. A limited amount of tabletop sponsorship opportunities are available for $75. If you are interested in reserving a table please contact Kiran at kiranpolk@gmail.com. Registration for Networking Night coming soon!
