UHERO Annual Report: Response to COVID-19

By the end of 2020, The University of Hawai‘i Economic Research Organization (UHERO) received $1.2 million in private support to fund critical economic research, and help Hawai‘i on the path to recovery. Donors include Hawai‘i Community Foundation, Bank of Hawai‘i Foundation, Kamehameha Schools, First Hawaiian Bank Foundation, DGM Group, Hawaiian Electric Industries Charitable Foundation, Hawai‘i Medical Service Association, Hawai‘i Pacific Health, American Savings Bank, Stanford Carr Development, HPM Building Supply Foundation, First Insurance Charitable Foundation, Hawai‘i Government Employees Association, Hawai‘i State AFL-CIO, Island Insurance Foundation, and the Harold K.L. Castle Foundation. The purpose of the $1.2 million was to enable UHERO to hire two full-time faculty and build capacity for applied research on the most pressing issues facing Hawai‘i.

    I am with the Exchange Club of Downtown Honolulu. We meet the first three Thursdays of every month at the Oahu Country Club for a luncheon meeting with a speaker on subjects of interest to our members.
    We were hoping that your organization could provide a speaker to discuss your recent Annual report. Usually a 40 minute presentation is requested, with ten minutes of Q&A.
    Please let me know if you can accommodate us. Our recent meetings have been on Zoom, although we hope OCC will open again shortly.
    We have openings for Nov. 4th & 11th, and the first three Thursdays in December.
