The August 17 Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) Board of Trustees community forum will be the last for OHA Board Vice Chair Boyd P. Mossman, who represents Maui, as he prepares to step down from his post on Nov. 1.

In the August 2011 edition of OHA’s Ka Wai Ola monthly newspaper, Mossman wrote, “I have accepted a call to serve God with my beloved companion as Temple President and Matron of the Kona Hawaii Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for 3 years. I will be resigning from all boards and organizations to which I now belong and discontinuing my private work as a commissioner, mediator and arbitrator for that period.”

In addition to the community forum, the OHA Board of Trustees will also be holding a board meeting the following day, Thursday, August 18 at the Kaanapali Beach Hotel.

The forum is designed for OHA officials to listen to concerns in the community as well as allow the OHA officials the opportunity to outline their strategic priorities for all Native Hawaiians in the state.


Both meetings are open to the public.
