OHA: Office of Hawaiian Affairs

Board of Trustees (BOT) Meetings

OHA’s Board of Trustees (BOT) meets regularly, usually twice a month on Thursdays. Agendas and minutes for BOT meetings are posted here as they become available. Periodically, the BOT calls for special meetings at the discretion of the Chair, Board of Trustees. Meetings are open to the public, but portions of the meetings may be held in executive session, which are allowed by law to be closed to the public.

BOT agendas serve as public notice of the meetings and are filed with the Office of the Lieutenant Governor. A minimum of five (5) Trustees is required to hold meetings. Beneficiary Comments and Community Concerns (testimony) are allowed at meetings. Individuals interested in providing comments at the meetings are expected to fill out and complete a form available on-site, fax testimony to  808-594-1868 or email testimony to BOTmeetings@oha.org 48 hours prior to the scheduled meeting.

The BOT is required to take minutes of the public portions of their meetings, which are placed on OHA’s website once approved. Meeting minutes from 2010 – 2014 can be downloaded here. The BOT meets at least once annually on each of the neighbor islands: Hawai’i, Maui, Moloka’i, Lāna’i, and Kauaʻi. Typically, the BOT will schedule back-to-back meetings, starting with a community meeting in the evening and a regular board meeting the following morning. The meetings on the neighbor islands are usually scheduled once a month beginning in May and ending in September.
