Hawaii Economic Update Luncheon

Living in South MauiIf you read our last blog about Bank of Hawaii claiming the No. 2 spot on Forbes' list of best banks of 2015, you may be interested to know that the bank has sponsored an Economic Update Luncheon with the Maui Chamber of Commerce and Paul Brewbaker.

The luncheon is on Friday, January 9th from 12-2pm at the King Kamehameha Golf Course Waikapu Ballroom, which is about twenty minutes away if you are living in South Maui. If it's important for you, as a Maui resident, to develop a strong grasp of our current economic situation, this talk should prove invaluable.

The key note address will be given by Paul H. Brewbaker, the Principal of TZ Economics, which is a consultancy that involves non-financial corporate work and litigation support in Hawaii. As for where his financial savvy comes in, he has a 25-year affiliation with Bank of Hawaii that concluded with his position as its Chief Economist. During those years, he performed extensive research on the unique qualities of the Hawaii economy, along with financial risk analytics. Paul is also a graduate of Stanford University, and he did graduate level work at the University of Wisconsin. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Hawaii.

As if those accomplishments weren't enough, he is also a member of the American Economic Association, the American Finance Association, the National Association for Business Economics, the Economic Association, and he lectures on undergraduate economic theory, as well as international and financial economics. Given his background, there are many Maui residents who could learn a lot from his knowledge base.

If you'd like to learn all you can from this luncheon, you can register early for $60 and late for $70. Registration for members is $20 cheaper in each case. As this is a luncheon, food is included with your reservation. It will be a buffet lunch, featuring organic Upcountry baby greens, Asian somen noodle salad, slow roasted pork loin, grilled boneless chicken, sauteed fresh fish with tropical salsa, fresh steamed vegetables, and white rice. You can't have a decent Maui gathering without a nice spread of food to go with it. It's kind of like a local rule. If you're new to living on Maui, the trend will become obvious with time. To reserve your space, contact the Maui Chamber of Commerce at 808-244-0081.

Mahalo for reading this week!
