Every month, local business leaders and experts share a broad range of information and experience geared for a Maui audience via free, online web conferences facilitated in partnership with MauiSpringboard.com.
MauiSpringboard.com is a new online business community similar to LinkedIn but focused on networking Maui County professionals. Currently, MauiSprinboard.com boasts 154 members.

In June, MauiSprinboard.com promises information that can help Maui professionals write and distribute effective press releases, cultivate attitudes for success, and build a referral network.
