Hawaiian Affairs Caucus logo

Aloha e nā hoa,

The Hawaiian Affairs Caucus is looking to fill county at-large positions on our executive committee. As a statewide organization, it is imperative that we have representation from community voices all across our pae ʻāina. The county at-large positions were established in 2013 to increase community participation in the leadership of the Hawaiian Affairs Caucus, be inclusive of the diversity of perspectives in our Hawaiian communities, and bring greater awareness to the range of issues effecting Native Hawaiians. A detailed description of the duties and authorities of the Executive Committee can be found at the HAC website: www.hawaiianaffairs.org.

Election to fill four positions will take place  at the next general membership meeting on Wednesday, July 13 at 6:00 p.m. Location to be announced. The positions are as follows:

  • One (1) At-Large Member from O‘ahu County
  • One (1) At-Large Member from Hawai‘i County
  • One (1) At-Large Member from Maui County
  • One (1) At-Large Member from Kauaʻi County

To be eligible, you must be a registered member of the Democratic Party of Hawaiʻi and be a member of the Hawaiian Affairs Caucus for at least six months. As an executive committee member, you will be expected to attend executive committee and general membership meetings, demonstrate involvement in Caucus activities, and fully subscribe to the purpose, mission, and values of the Caucus. A written statement to this effect must accompany your interest as a candidate for an at-large position.

Please also indicate your county of residence. Email to the HAC Secretary Rhonda Roldan, at  hawaiian.affairs.caucus@gmail.com by not later than July 5, 2016. Upon her receipt of your email, she will then verify your membership status with the Party and the Caucus. Nominations will also be taken at the meeting (note that it is more convenient for us to verify you beforehand).

A description of the duties and authorities of the Executive Committee can be found at the HAC website, www.hawaiianaffairs.org.

Please share this with your friends and ʻohana. Mahalo and we look forward to hearing from you!
