"The Kailua Chamber grew from a memory of watching small community business. Trust, friendship, and community were woven into the island way of life. It is an unspoken vibe. We don’t need to look back to find that essence. It has been with us all along."
Kailua business community is active, thriving and supported by residents, visitors and fellow businesses and the KCOC is a cross-section of businesses and individuals from the Kailua community that serves to unite members of the business and industrial communities in a spirit of mutual cooperation and dedication. This association serves to address – and solve – many of the problems facing Windward Oahu.
Established in 1957 as the Windward Chamber of Commerce, the organization has become an active influence in Windward Oahu, the Honolulu City Council and State Legislature. As the Windward area grew in population, the organization became the Kailua Chamber of Commerce, focusing its efforts on Kailua, Enchanted Lake, Aikahi Park and Lanikai.
The Kailua business community is active, thriving and supported by residents, visitors and fellow businesses.
