Aloha and welcome to one of the nation’s premiere tax and wealth transfer conferences. Practitioners interested in keeping abreast of the latest developments in tax and wealth transfer education are certain to welcome the opportunity to participate in the 59th Annual Hawaii Tax Institute sponsored by the Hawaii Tax Institute Foundation and Chaminade University of Honolulu. This year’s program provides unparalleled education and professional development opportunities delivered by a diverse and distinguished faculty of recognized tax and wealth transfer authorities with a positive approach to current and practical subjects.
While the Institute is designed primarily to serve as a forum where tax and wealth transfer oriented people may freely exchange ideas on practical problems, professional status is not a prerequisite for registration. This program is designed for attorneys, accountants, financial planners, planned giving professionals, bank and trust administrators, insurance agents, elder law specialists, non-profit administrators, wealth management professionals, enrolled agents, educators, and others who would benefit from high quality continuing education. The highest level of learning has been the hallmark of prior Institutes and we shall endeavor to again maintain this standard.
The Hawaii Tax Institute will be offering "HTI Live" for this year's 59th Annual Hawaii Tax Institute Conference, live streaming our plenary sessions from our Hawaii Ballrooms, to those who can not join us in-person. 17 hours of continuing education credit will be available through this platform with a continuing education certificate awarded at the end of the conference. Program materials will be available for each session and can be accessed via the MyHTI tab - Document Library.
Registration Opening Soon
