Our President and General Manager Su Shin Meisenzahl joined Katie Pickman and Ryan Tanaka in the Chamber of Commerce Hawaii Young Professionals Exec Connect program. The program is a great opportunity that helps support young professionals as they prepare to become the next generation of business leaders.
Established by the Chamber of Commerce Hawaii in 2011, the Young Professionals (YP) Program fosters an environment for young business professionals, ages 21-39, in the State of Hawaii to elevate their professional skills while enhancing their personal network. Local organizations, business communities and professionals from a wide range of industries depend on the YP program to prepare the next generation of business leaders.
Since its inception, the program has served young professionals and organizations with opportunities to network side-by-side with C-suite executives, engage socially with like-minded peers, experience exclusive behind the scene field trips to local organizations and learn from leading industry experts.
The program serves over 300 members annually by providing high-level connections primarily through the support of Chamber members and executives. The YP Steering Committee is comprised of dedicated volunteer members whose efforts are to provide purposeful and rewarding opportunities. The YP program has been proud to cultivate numerous members that have been highly recognized by organizations such as Hawaii Business magazine’s “Twenty for the Next 20: Hawaii’s People to Watch” and Pacific Business News’ “Forty Under 40.”
