Welcome to the New Home of our Wahiawa Community & Business Association!
Over the past few years, the WCBA has recognized that we can do more to help our business community. So we are reinventing ourselves to help better serve you and our local business community. We promise to engage with the community and help address common concerns.
About our Community
Known as the “Gateway to the Country”, Wahiawa is one of Oahu’s best kept secrets. This small town is located on the Leilehua Plain, between the Waianae and Ko’olau mountain ranges. Wahiawa is also the site of Kukaniloko, or the birthing stones, where Hawaiian royalty was traditionally born. Wahiawa has a long military history; it was a warrior training school that still exists today as Schofield Barracks Military Reservation. The area is best known today for pineapple and was once the pineapple capital of the world. We look forward to rejuvenating our town and look forward to sharing new and exciting updates with you!
A Message From the Wahiawa Community & Business Association
Aloha to our Wahiawa community and businesses!
The Wahiawa Community & Business Association has been in existence since 1935 and the changes that we’ve seen has spurred a whirlwind of events. We at WCBA, will continue to be an advocate for Wahiawa businesses and our community through all of those changes. Make no mistake, it will be challenging but many of the things worth fighting for is, and will always be, met with challenges.
With the help of our existing board members, along with the addition of new members, we hope to take this longstanding organization into a new direction. We are in the process of rebranding WCBA to appeal to those that have a rich history and personal connection to “Our Wahiawa”. We thank you for visiting here on our new website, but also check out our new Facebook page, and our Twitter page. We would like for you to share some of your fondest memories and photos with us so that we can all take that walk down memory lane together.
If you have any stories that might be of interest to the community, please feel free to contact us so that we can share the articles of interest to everyone that visits us. You can contact us through our website or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our ongoing connection to our Military neighbors makes this community so unique, you can’t help but embrace our cultural diversity. The WCBA will remain actively involved in government affairs that affect all of us that call Wahiawa our home, by being the conduit in which our residents and businesses have a voice, so that we may prosper, become a place of Aloha, and embrace our culture and family values.
