NORTH SHORE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
“We exist to promote, maintain, and encourage the historic, cultural, civic & economic welfare of the North Shore district through research, education, advocacy, and other related activities.”
WHAT IS THE NORTH SHORE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE?
NSCOC is a private, non-profit organization. We work toward historic preservation, improvement and beautification of the area,
marketing, and planned, appropriate, and sustainable economic development that serves both residents and visitors alike. We are
committed to protecting the rural character of the North Shore. Both individuals and businesses may join our organization, which operates primarily on volunteer energy and tax-deductible donations. Monies are raised through membership dues, donations, grants and fundraising activities.
WHAT DOES THE NORTH SHORE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE DO?
Since its inception in 1989 when we were incorporated as Haleiwa Main Street (HMS), we have actively worked to uphold the
Haleiwa Special District, beautify Haleiwa Town, increase economic activity and promote Haleiwa and the North Shore through
special events and media promotions. HMS successfully lead the North Shore’s efforts to redesign the Haleiwa Bypass entrance and
install three signs along the bypass and at the entrance of the town to attract visitors. HMS was also instrumental in the restoration of
the historic Waialua District Court House and developed a Historic Walking Tour of the town. In 2002, the name was changed to
DBA North Shore Chamber of Commerce to include the whole North Shore community.
WHY SHOULD I SUPPORT North Shore Chamber of Commerce?
The North Shore is the premier recreation area and resting-place for all of Oahu. Haleiwa Town is the heart of the North Shore and
home to over 30 historic structures and many small businesses. NSCOC’s primary objective is to preserve this island’s last, historic,
country town and district. We need your support to accomplish this mission. The loss of Haleiwa and the North Shore as a country
town and area is a loss for all Oahu residents, not just those who live on the North Shore.
