KIA Networking Event

There were 25 attendees at the June 15th KIA Networking Event. It was a great to bring members together and  (1) meet in person, (2) get to know each other’s company, (3) make appointments to work together, (4) give each other referrals, and (5) offer accolades of those businesses who have already worked with a KIA member. All of that happened, plus many enjoyed the delicious lunch offered at a discount from Stage Restaurant. A big Mahalo goes to the Honolulu Design Center for their support of KIA with their Cupola room accommodations.
