The press will weigh in on Rail on Thursday April 26th. Here's a video about the program.
Join us at the next ThinkTech Hawaii Venture Capital Association luncheon on April 26, 2012 at the Plaza Club 20th Floor from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. for a great conversation about “Transportation in Hawaii, The press weighs in on Rail.”
Rail is the largest public works project ever undertaken in Hawaii and will affect all of us. With that in mind, we plan an examination into the subject from a different perspective. No debate, no rail or anti-rail, just an in-depth conversation with a host of journalists. We will explore the coverage, the costs, the challenges, the impact, the trade-offs, the likelihood of success, transportation oriented development issues and what it all means to our congested highways and byways.
After opening remarks from Mayor Peter Carlisle, we will present two panels of journalists: The first panel will examine "the Coverage on Rail," moderated by Steve Petranik of Hawaii Business Magazine with panelists Jerry Burris, Richard Halloran, Mark Platte and Barbara Tanabe. The second panel will examine "the Story on Rail," moderated by David Tumilowicz of Hawaii Business Magazine with panelists Mark Abramson, Michael Levine, Ian Lind, Neal Milner and Malia Zimmerman.
Let's meet and explore this important subject with these members of the press at the ThinkTech-HVCA luncheon on April 26th. As always, enjoy good food, great people and a first class networking experience. Register at hvca.org.
See you then!
