Dear Members & Supporters of the HJCC,

As we approach the closing of 2023, it is with gratitude that I extend my warmest greetings to each and every one of you. The new year is a time for reflection, renewal, and anticipation, and it brings me pleasure to share this moment with the  members of our Chamber.

In the past year, our Chamber staff has been busy implementing key initiatives for the current fiscal year.  First and foremost is the conversion of our Membership Management System and Website.  We are nearly completed with the conversion that is schedule to take effect on Friday, December 29, 2023.  We ask for your patience as we make the adjustment to this new system.

A membership survey will also be launched in early January 2024.  We encourage you to take the time to complete this very important survey.  You feedback will be incorporated into our 2024-2025 Strategic Plan.

As we look to the future, I am filled with optimism and confidence. The year ahead holds boundless opportunities for growth, innovation, and prosperity. Let us carry forward the lessons learned from the past, drawing strength from our collective experiences. By embracing change with open minds, we position ourselves to not only overcome challenges but to thrive in the evolving landscape of business and commerce.

May the New Year of the Dragon bring you and your loved ones joy, good health, and prosperity. Thank you for your dedication, support, and contributions to the Honolulu Japanese Chamber of Commerce. Here's to a year of growth, success, and meaningful connections!
