Get involved in OHA’s Strategic Planning Process

The Office of Hawaiian Affairs has started the process to develop our Strategic Plan for 2020 and beyond. An important part of this process is engaging with you, our beneficiaries and stakeholders. For those who prefer face-to-face interaction, OHA will be hosting community meetings throughout the pae ʻāina.

We invite you to join us at one of nine community meetings we have scheduled in May and June 2019. At the meetings we will share about our strategic planning process and learn about the needs of our beneficiaries. Your input can help determine OHA’s focus for years to come. All meetings start at 5:30 p.m. Please join us.
