The West Maui Taxpayers Association will host its Annual Members Meeting on Thursday Jan. 8, 2015, at the Lahaina Civic Center.

The event will include an update on the proposed West Maui Hospital, as well as input from representatives at the Maui Memorial Medical Center.


Among the guest speakers confirmed for the event are Wesley Lo, Regional Chief Executive Officer of the Hawaiʻi Health Systems Corporation at the Maui Memorial Medical Center; as well as Brian Hoyle and Michelle Berner with the Newport Hospital Corporation and the West Maui Hospital Foundation.

Other confirmed guest speakers include: Senator Roz Baker; Representative Angus McKelvey; Maui Mayor Alan Arakawa; West Maui Council Member Elle Cochran; and Stanford Carr, President, Stanford Carr Development – Kahoma Village.

The public is invited to attend, and the event will also be taped and rebroadcast to air on Akakū Maui Community Television.


Organization representatives say nearly 300 people attended last year’s meeting.

The upcoming meeting features complimentary food service provided by the MWTA, which begins at 5 p.m., followed by a short business meeting at 5:30 p.m.

Organizers say the major purpose of the meeting is to have elected officials address issues of interest to the West Maui community, and to have special presentations on major projects such as a West Maui hospital, affordable housing and traffic problems.
