General Meeting Member Business...
The new MNHCoC Board Members at Large was installed.  This was a wonderful opportunity to meet and congratulate the incoming board of director members (as well as mingle with the rest of the board and the rest of the membership). 

Guest Speakers...
New Board Member Ryan MacLaughlin made us aware of the Hawaii Affiliates of Sotheby’s International Realty (HASIR) Charitable Fund, the Hoʻokupu Fund, a collective philanthropy effort across all four Hawaii-based offices enabling each office and each agent to coordinate support either through gift, donation, time, etc… Even clients, current and past, are encouraged to participate. It is a great way for clients to get involved in their (new) community and a way for the community to see how important they are to HASIR. Each year, a new single organization is picked for a large monetary gift in order to provide a tangible impact. The grant-making is professionally managed and advised by the Hawaii Community Foundation.

The original concept came from Island Sotheby’s on Maui, where Paul MacLaughlin originated the effort amongst his agents, and choosing "Hoʻokupu": a Hawaiian ceremonial presentation of gifts formerly offered as tribute.

Dinner Buffet (with no host bar) was provided by Daniʻs Catering
featured: mochiko chicken, fried mahi mahi, and beef broccoli and pumpkin pie for dessert.
