    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.

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

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.

    The Chamber partnered with the University of Hawaii - West Oahu on two events to expand student internship opportunities.  A student came up with the idea and approached the Chamber Executive Director for assistance.  

    The first event was an Internship and Career Prep Workshop, held March 14, which drew 50 students and featured three human resource specialists (from Hawaiian Airlines, Bishop & Co., and Hawaiian Electric). They spoke on topics including how to write a resume and how to prepare for a job interview.

    The Fair and Networking event, held April 17, drew 120 students and 23 businesses and organizations. Surveys of both students and participating businesses and organizations indicated a high level of satisfaction of the two events - and supported efforts to stage such events in the future!
