The Native Hawaiian Chamber of Commerce (NHCC) strives to encourage and promote the interests of Native Hawaiians engaged in business and professions. NHCC members participate in a variety of economic, social and public affairs.
Our programs include monthly membership meetings at which presenters share their knowledge and experience on topics that are important to Hawaiian businesses and professionals. NHCC is an affiliate of the Chamber of Commerce of Hawai`i and actively participates in government relations activities to be the voice of Native Hawaiian business and professions.
OUR FOUNDER'S STORY
Founded in 1974, the Native Hawaiian Chamber of Commerce was formed to meet the needs of Native Hawaiians struggling to gain an equal footing with leaders in business at the time. Founding members Ed Auld, Charles Scott Ho'olulu May, and Melvin Kaipoleimanu Soong tell the story of the start of NHCC and the progress that Native Hawaiians have since made as leaders in Hawaii's business community.
