OHA Board to Hold Two Meetings on Maui
By Sonia Isotov
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.
“We look forward to useful comments and suggestions from our key audiences on the neighbor islands,” said Kamana’opono Crabbe, the chief executive officer of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, in a statement to the public. “It’s our hope that feedback from the Hawaiian community on the neighbor islands will help contribute to a positive outcome as OHA works toward such established goals as empowering Hawaiians and strengthening Hawai’i.”
Both Maui meetings are open to the public. Here are the specifics:
