Title: Native Hawaiian Chamber Partners with the City's Office of Economic Revitalization
By: Andrew Rosen, Executive Director - NHCC
The Native Hawaiian Chamber of Commerce appreciates our new partnership with the Office of Economic Revitalization (OER) to create good jobs for our people and help small businesses thrive as we emerge from the pandemic.
OER was established at the City and County of Honolulu in the early months of the pandemic to coordinate spending of federal CARES Act funds. Their work eased the financial hardship of small businesses and families.
As the economy evolved, OER’s strategy has pivoted to focus on good jobs: creating good jobs for our community, preserving good jobs at local companies, and giving local people the opportunity to learn new job skills and gain good jobs.
The Business and Constituent Educators (BCE) are the grassroots outreach team at OER. They personally visit small businesses all over the island to listen to their concerns and connect them with help from the City and its nonprofit partners. A few examples:
- Need help finding qualified workers for your small business? The BCE team will connect you to no-cost services.
- Looking to ramp up your social media and online marketing? They will refer you to skilled technical resources that provide advice and insight at no cost.
- Having challenges with a City agency? The BCE team can help troubleshoot the issue.
We invite you to learn how the BCE team and OER are helping small businesses at our Lunch and Learn on February 1 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m at the Oʻahu Country Club, 150 Country Club Road. For more information or to register for the event, go to the Chamber's website at www.nativehawaiianchamberofcommerce.com
The Native Hawaiian Chamber of Commerce is working to provide solutions, education, support, and action to help our members and the community's professional growth and prosperity. We hope to see you on February 1 at the O'ahu Country Club!
