Leaders Who Care: Meet Your New Chapter Board Members!

The Hawai'i-Pacific Chapter of ACHE board recently completed elections and a new board member orientation in February.

Greetings and welcome to 2016!

This past December, the Hawai'i - Pacific Chapter of ACHE held elections for Officers and Directors.  Additionally, a new board member orientation was hosted by Art Gladstone and Nicholas Hughey on Tuesday, February 2 and was a great opportunity for board members to become acuainted with chapter policies, position responsibilities, and goals for the upcoming year.   

Meet our new incoming board members (L to R):  Directors Suzie So-Miyahira and Stefan Fedusiv;
