A brief overview of the 2021 KPHA Annual Meeting:
It was a challenge (audio and technical issues) but we adapted.
It was educational (chat rooms/raised hands are convenient) with lessons learned.
It was enlightening (so many varied points of view) and so we listened and understood.
It was a success, albeit a long meeting, but we accomplished Annual Meeting goals.
Board of Directors: The membership voted to keep a five (5) member board of directors and voted in two board members: Kathy Doyle was voted in for another term and Gerald Yuh was voted in as a new board member. The 2021 KPHA Board of Directors is as follows:
Stan Anderson – President (term expires 2023)
Cheryl Ruffner – Vice President (term expires 2023)
David Kolb – Treasurer (term expires 2022)
Kathy Doyle – Secretary (term expires 2024)
Gerald Yuh – Director (term expires 2024)
Attendance: We had a good turnout, with five members coming to the clubhouse and thirty-six members participating via Zoom conferencing and by phone. We made quorum with one hundred seventeen proxies. To all members who sent in proxies and/or participated in the meeting, Mahalo Nui Loa for making your voices heard! To the members who could not attend, please know that your voice is important, and we welcome you to join our regular (monthly) BOD meetings anytime.
Budget Information: I am including the budget information (see Budget area in Members Only portal) which was inadvertently left out of the Annual Meeting Packet - please know that current budget information is posted on our KPHA website in the members only area – you can look at that whenever you are logged in as a member. If you don’t see what you are looking for, please call the office and we’ll be happy to assist.
Future BOD Meetings: As requested by KPHA members, starting this June, one week prior to each BOD meeting, I will send out a Zoom link and agenda for the upcoming meeting so that any member may participate if they wish to. We hope to see you at the meetings!
Job well done: I want to take this moment to recognize the staff who made this meeting happen – Our Administrative Assistant Brandi Johnston, whose expertise and tech savvy know-how allowed for all to go so smoothly, Penny DeLuna was instrumental in taking care of the in-person members and helping with the electronics, and KPHA President of the Board of Directors, Stan Anderson, whose oversight and leadership brought it all together.
Adopt-a-Highway: Lastly, here’s a reminder that we will be collecting trash along the Kamehameha Highway for the Adopt-A-Highway Program on Saturday, June 19. Please let me know if you will be able to help us pick up trash along the highway (from mile marker 4 to 6) as I will need to provide volunteer information to the county. Mahalo for helping keep Molokai litter free!!
Mahalo once again everyone! Please let me know if you have any questions! Enjoy your week!
