Upcoming OHA Maui meetings shift to virtual hosting

KAHULUI (August 10, 2021) – Due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases in Hawaiʻi and in accordance with current COVID-19 safety guidance, the two OHA meetings scheduled this week in Kahului, Maui, will be hosted virtually only. Additionally, OHA Trustee site visits scheduled on Aug. 11 have been cancelled.

Beneficiaries are encouraged to tune in to www.oha.org/livestream for the OHA Maui Community Meeting on Aug. 11 at 6:00 p.m. and the OHA Board Meeting on Aug. 12 at 9:30 am. Written and oral testimony may be submitted. Instructions for submitting testimony are available on the OHA website: https://www.oha.org/how-to-submit-testimony-for-oha-bot-meetings/.

“Hawaiʻi is experiencing some of the highest COVID-19 case counts of the pandemic with a disproportionate number of cases in the Native Hawaiian community,” said OHA Chair Carmen “Hulu” Lindsey. “Now more than ever it is important that we stay vigilant, get vaccinated and follow COVID-19 safety guidance to protect ourselves and our communities.”

The community meeting is intended for OHA officials to listen to beneficiary manaʻo and highlight efforts to improve the conditions of Native Hawaiians. Regular board business will be conducted at the trustee meeting. Both meetings are open to the public.

During the pandemic, the Board continued to conduct business via Zoom. Based on an assessment of conditions in the island community, in July, OHA held its first in-person meeting on Molokaʻi.

To view updates to the board meeting schedule and official meeting agendas, please visit https://oha.org/BOT. For more information on the Maui meetings, please contact OHA’s Maui Resource Center at (808) 873-3364.
