The culture of our Hawaiian Islands is steeped in the values of kuleana (responsibility) and malama (care). Now that travelers can once again enjoy our islands, we are asking you to join in our efforts to help keep Hawaii safe.

The State of Hawaii welcomes all vaccinated international travelers and is aligned with the CDC federal international requirements. Non-U.S. citizen traveling directly to Hawaii must present BOTH a vaccination record AND a negative COVID-19 test result (NAAT or antigen) within one day of boarding a flight to the U.S. The airlines will screen passengers prior to their departure to the United States.

U.S. citizens flying directly to Hawaii from an international destination have two options: (1) fully vaccinated U.S. citizens must provide proof of vaccination AND a negative COVID-19 test result within one day of boarding a flight to Hawaii OR (2) if not vaccinated, a negative COVID-19 test result within one day of boarding a flight to Hawaii.

The Safe Travels Program remains in place for domestic travelers. International travelers entering the U.S. via another state or territory will be treated as domestic travelers when entering the State of Hawaii.

Domestic travelers must follow all Safe Travels Hawaii protocols.

Breakfast for conference attendees is served each morning prior to class and a light snack is provided mid-morning. Attendees are on their own for lunch and dinner. 

The conference registration price does not include lodging. The conference price is just for your CPE.

Western CPE does not book flights for conference participants. However, we encourage you to take advantage of discounts available for Western CPE conference attendees.

Western CPE has contracted discounted accommodations with the resort properties, however all customers are responsible for making their own reservations directly with the hotel either through the reservation link on our website or by calling the hotel directly and specifying you are a Western CPE conference attendee. Group rates apply to initial room blocks, which occasionally sell out. It’s always best to make your room reservation immediately after booking your conference.

We want you to be comfortable at our conferences, so at most locations, resort casual is recommended. At some conferences, such as our cruises, it’s recommended that gentlemen have a jacket and tie for evening dining. Our main goal is for you to receive quality education comfortably!

Western CPE gives you several options for replacing a day of live instruction. Please contact customer care at (800) 822-4194 for details. 

Yes! We sincerely appreciate all customer referrals and encourage you to bring along your peers so that they may experience our popular CPE Conferences firsthand. Individual guests will be charged our full registration fee, and for groups of 5 or more, discounts are available.
