We are a private non-profit, member-based organization working with the Hawaii Tourism Authority and our membership ohana to make tourism work for and with Hawaii.
We’re everywhere tourism intersects with the community, with Island Chapters on the ground in every county and contacts at every level of government. That gives us a vast amount of knowledge, resources, and connections that we use to empower our membership ohana to research, understand, and connect with visitors.
And we are fierce advocates for growing Hawaii’s number one industry sustainably and for the benefit of local communities, perpetuating our state’s wealth of environmental and cultural resources so future generations can continue to enjoy them.
Ultimately, we are stewards of Hawaii’s brand. Not just as the world’s greatest travel destination, but as one of the world’s most precious resources.
HVCB recognizes the use of diacritical markings of the (modern) Hawaiian language including the `okina [`] or glottal stop and the kahakō [ō] or macron (e.g., in place names of Hawai`i such as Lāna`i). However, you may notice these diacritical markings have been omitted throughout the website to ensure the best online experience for our visitors. HVCB recognizes the importance of using these markings to preserve the language and culture of Hawaii and respectfully uses them in all communications beyond the online platform.
