Join us for the 2024 Legislative Briefings 

at the Pacific Club

Designed to keep you abreast of current events and provide an understanding of the process behind tax legislation compilation and approval, this is a great opportunity for CPAs, our members, and the general public to learn how public spending and tax policies affect you, your business, and the state’s fiscal health.

These briefings occur during the session of the Hawaii State Legislature and are worth one CPE credit per hour session. We will cover new and proposed tax, public spending, and finance legislation.

The briefings, at The Pacific Club, begin at 7:30 a.m., end no later than 8:30 a.m., and will include a continental breakfast.
