Nā Lei Makalapua - Mainland Council Report 2012
by Theodora Furtado
Aloha Mai Kakou!
Since our last gathering at the AHCC quarterly meeting in July, the Mainland Council has welcomed seven new civic clubs to the Association formed in the States of California, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Minnesota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. Work continues in the effort of assisting Native Hawaiians in other areas of the country to form civic clubs to continue the work and legacy of Prince Kuhio. We look forward to others developing their clubs and welcoming to the Mainland Council and the Association.
For the Mainland Council as a whole two projects stand out for us. First, the Mainland Council now has a website! It is our hope that as time progresses, this will serve as another avenue of communication with our clubs, as well as the opportunity for clubs to communicate with each other and the world wide web about the work in which they are involved. Second, like all clubs and councils, our newly formed Policy and Planning Committee has diligently worked on revisions of our Constitution and By-laws to update it in alignment with the revised Association Constitution and By-laws. Additionally, this committee is working on policies and procedures that will assist the Council to be more effective.
As you will see from the component club reports, our clubs have been active in their respective areas, whether that be hosting or participating in festivals to give witness to the spirit of aloha, conducting workshops, completing their Ho'olako projects, celebrating their youth and honoring them with scholarships, or participating in conferences that focus on Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders in the come issues we face here on the continent. We invite you to read further to learn about each of our clubs and the kuleana that they have taken on in the last few months prior to convention.
Na Lei Makalapua welcomes all of you to the 53rd Convention of the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs! Our mahalo goes out to all who have come, both far and near to be a part of this historic event and to all who have had a hand in making this a memorable convention. A special mahalo is extended to the leadership and members of Ke Ali'i Maka'ainana HCC for being such gracious hosts. We hope that you will enjoy this time away from home yet be at home with the ohana of the Association
