"There's real power in local companies working together to reach and engage a local audience."  Your Reputation is Also Crucial "Giving your time and talent to our community will help to build your reputation," says Dave Erdman. "When I started my company, I was time-constrained and financially constrained, but I got involved in our industry and communities, immediately joining the Japanese Chamber of Commerce, the Chamber of Commerce Hawaii, the Metro and then Honolulu Sunrise RotaryRetail Merchants of Hawaii, and within a few years of starting my. company, became the chair for the local chapter of PATA, or the Pacific Asia Travel Association. I was on the board for the Hawaii Lupus Foundation and also my local homeowners association, all within the first five years of starting the company.
