KIA Member News

KIA’s member, The Patsy T. Mink Center for Business & Leadership (aka MCBL) supports prospective and current entrepreneurs by providing no-cost or low-cost entrepreneurship education, business counseling and networking opportunities. We encourage prospective and current business owners to take advantage of our one-on-one and small group counseling, as the first 3 sessions are at no-cost. Counseling sessions occur in hour long increments with subject matter experts or attorneys by appointment only.

This coming February 17th we will be running our 3rd Launch My Business Series - an intensive 8 week program designed for individuals who are looking to start or have recently started a business. Classes for this series run every Tuesday and Thursday starting 2/17 thru 4/6 from 5:30p-8:30p. Seating is limited as this series is designed to provide personalized guidance to each participant. For more information on our services, to request counseling or register for the Launch My Business Series, please visit, call 695-2635 or email

KIA Golf Tournament

Loretta Yajima, CEO of the Children's Discovery Center, wants KIA members to know that the funding from the 2014 KIA golf tournament enabled them to install a major identity sign at their front AND also some inspirational messages on the park side of our building, which will be installed in Phase 2.
