Aloha CMAA Hawaii,
Mahalo to all those who volunteered this past Saturday for the Hale Mauliola Community Service Event. The Institute for Human Services was pleased with the hard work done by the CMAA Hawaii volunteers!
Since this project was so large, not all the work was completed on Saturday. We are now seeking a small group of volunteers (6-8 people) to come out this Saturday, August 4th and complete the deck handrail construction at Hale Mauliola.
With enough volunteers, the work should only take about 4-6 hours to complete.
If you would like to volunteer or have any questions please contact:
Thank you to those who volunteered and supported the community service beautification project at the YWCA in Honolulu on April 21st. The event was very successful and it was especially good to see new faces as well as all the volunteers who have repeatedly come out to support the CMAA community service effort in Hawaii.
The event was held at 1040 Richards St. in Honolulu. This historic building was built in 1924 and designed by the first woman architect in Hawaii. Volunteers provided painting services, landscape preparation, planting and cleaning.
The YWCA provides special programs and educational opportunities for young women in the area and is open to the public.
Mahalo to Frank Parker for organizing the event.
Want to attend?
There are only 6 seats left before the class sells out (again).
Also the early registration will end on Tuesday 18 July. After that all prices will increase by $100.

The need to develop and implement Infrastructure improvement projects, whether wastewater, transportation, education, commercial or residential- will remain a constant. The costs of developing and constructing projects continues to grow. In order to realize these projects, and get them built at their best value cost, efficient oversight is needed in both the planning and implementation of their construction. Finding efficiency and innovation through the utilization of best practices and solid field experience is the realm of the Construction Manager.
Hawaii’s owners are realizing that there is great value in using Certified Construction Managers to administer and support their Construction projects.
So…Are you ready?
