Benefits of membership.

While everyone is welcome to attend the regular meetings and participate in many of the association's activities, members enjoy extra benefits including:
 - Big savings on purchases at the Hilo outlet of BEI Hawaii.
 - The association's newsletter goes only to members.
 - Some tours, classes, and events are limited to members, or may be free to members while non-members may be charged a fee.
 - Members elect the Board of Directors who guide the association.
 - A section of the website accessible only to members contains information and resources of interest to those in the cacao and chocolate industries.

The cost of EHCA membership is very modest compared to the other cacao-related organizations in the state. Your financial support is important to enable the association to promote the cacao and chocolate industries in Hawaii.
