HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Chamber of Commerce Hawaii today announced its line up of activities for its 5th annual Chamber Week, January 16-19, 2018, giving members and the business community an opportunity to meet legislators and share their thoughts and concerns about the business climate in Hawaii. Chamber Week is timed to coincide with the opening of the legislative session on Wednesday, January 17.

“Chamber Week is part of our ongoing efforts to build business and a better business climate in Hawaii,” said Chamber of Commerce Hawaii President and CEO Sherry Menor-McNamara. “An integral part of this process is to have our members, and the business community at large, engaged in the legislative process and with Hawaii’s policy makers. The Chamber, with support from the business community, stands ready to support job creation, invigorate our business climate and make Hawaii a more attractive place to conduct business and invest in our future.”

Chamber Week was launched in 2014 to engage the local business community in the legislative process, inform them of the Chamber’s business advocacy activities and, ultimately, invest in Hawaii’s future. As it has for the past four sessions, the Chamber will be introducing its own business package for the 2018 session in support of lowering the cost of doing business, spurring economic development and investing in the future of Hawaii.
