OHA Board hosts neighbor island community meetings virtually

 

HONOLULU (Sept. 30, 2020) – The OHA Board of Trustees will dedicate five meetings in September and October to hearing from community members located on the neighbor islands. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the OHA Board of Trustees’ annual series of neighbor island community meetings will be held virtually, consistent with the Governor’s Emergency Supplementary Proclamation that is currently in effect.

The community meetings will include time for public testimony, presentations from community organizations and an update on OHA’s efforts to improve the conditions of Native Hawaiians.

ABOUT THE OHA BOARD OF TRUSTEES

OHA’s Board of Trustees is composed of nine trustees who are elected to their seats in public elections. Four of the nine positions on the Board are designated as at-large seats representing the state as a whole, while the other five trustees represent each of the following districts: Hawai‘i Island, Maui, Moloka‘i and Lāna‘i, O‘ahu, and Kaua‘i and Ni‘ihau.

The Board of Trustees is responsible for setting OHA policy and managing the agency’s trust. Because of COVID-19, the Board shifted to virtual meetings in May 2020.
