HONOLULU — The Filipino Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii celebrated its 60th Anniversary with the installation of new officers and directors. Lt. Governor Shan Tsutsui presented a certificate of commendation to the board of directors, officers and scholarship recipients.
The Chamber’s long history in Hawaii began when a group of Filipino businessmen – civic minded and fueled with the desire to unite the then fledgling Filipino business community – met in 1947 and created the Filipino Businessman’s Association to promote the common aims of the Filipino community.
Membership in the Chamber is limited to men and women who are of full or part-Filipino ancestry and engaged in business or profession or a duly accredited head of a business organization or any of its bona fide departments; or individuals who are actively interested in community affairs.
