Think banking is boring? Well, here’s some bang for your buck: Al Landon, chairman and CEO of Bank of Hawaii, speaks on how those “boring” banking practices resulted in his bank being named the top performer in the nation by Forbes magazine during the West Oahu Economic Development Association’s luncheon at 11:15 a.m. this Friday at the JW Marriott Ihilani Resort and Spa at Ko Olina.

Landon also will discuss Hawaii’s current economic situation and how it relates to West Oahu in particular.

Gregory Barbour, administrator of the Hawaii Foreign-Trade Zone, also will be on hand to discuss how 14 specially designated areas in Hawaii (all of which fall outside U.S. Customs’ territory) allow unique cost savings for companies that use foreign-made components in their manufacturing and/or stores.

Registration begins at 10:45. Tickets cost $60 per person, and students with proper ID will get a special $15 entry rate. For more information or to register, call Barbie Rosario at 842-1600 or e-mail .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
