From Our President: We're Off and Rolling!

Inspired and challenged by the orientation conducted for new board members by Muriel Roberts in May, the Honolulu LWV officers and directors held their first meeting June 20th at Fay Hill's Hawaii Kai home. The general objectives of membership and money were refined into two specific and measureable goals:

1. A net gain of 50 members with two phase increments

(a) 25 members by November 1

(b) 25 members by March 31

= 50 new members

2. We have set $4,000 as a monetary goal for the 3rd joint Makamaka Mixer, which is a 100% increase over last year.

To implement these plans we are considering adding a downtown and/or Leeward unit, depending on membership involvement. If interested in a downtown unit, please write or phone the office with your name and phone number (residence and business) by August 1.

As you can see, these ambitious goals reflect an eager and dynamic board. Are they possible? Absolutely:

New Board Members

Several new appointments have been added to our board: Helen Wharton, former Windward Unit leader, will be serving as the Unit Coordinator for the coming year.

Kay Makens will join Kay Allen on the Finance Committee and has agreed to chair the Makamaka Mixer. Kay was a former League member in Texas, but recently moved to Hawaii from Nicaragua.

June Sanders, a member of the City Council study, has also joined our board as an appointed director; she will be coordinating an ethics conference for LWV in October.

A UH political science major, Pam Green, comes to the board as the new chairman of the Planning and Zoning Committee. Pam is a "brand new" League member, and was recently elected to Neighborhood Board #7 in Manoa.

So watch us go!
