The Office of Hawaiian Affairs Board of Trustees will hold a community meeting and a regular board meeting on Maui on May 15 and May 16.

Native Hawaiians will have an opportunity to provide feedback to the organization at a community forum as well as at a regular meeting scheduled by the Board of Trustees.

The community meeting is designed for the trustees to listen to concerns and highlight efforts to improve conditions within Hawaiian communities, according to a media announcement released by the Office.


OHA’s community forum and regular board meeting on Maui are among meetings scheduled on each of the five neighbor islands between now and September.

In June, Moloka’i will be the next neighbor island to host the community forum and regular board meeting, followed by Lana’i in July, Kaua’i in August, and Hawai`i Island in September.
