Mahalo For Attending

7th Annual Mini-Conference – Mahalo for Attending!

Aloha CMAA Hawaii,

Thank you to all those who attended the 2018 CMAA Mini-Conference last month. This year we topped the attendance record for this event yet again! We hope you enjoyed the conference and were able to meet and mingle with fellow CM friends and colleagues.

We would also like to offer a big Mahalo to all of our speakers.


We look forward to seeing you all again next year!



Mahalo YWMCA Volunteers

Aloha Volunteers,

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.

Update: Mahalo for the overwhelming response to our upcoming community service event! We have filled all of our volunteer slots for this event!

Support for our community through events such as this one are one of foundations of CMAA Hawaii- we are fortunate to have so many people willing to help.

If you did not get a chance to sign up for this event- please stay tuned, we are continuing to plan future events and could always use the help.

If you have signed up, Welcome, Thank you and please watch for details on the event via a smaller (group only ) distribution list.  


On Saturday September 16th CMAA will sponsor a community service event doing cleaning and painting at Child & Family Service’s (CFS) transitional housing site in Honolulu, in the Nuuanu/Kuakini/School Street neighborhood.

We have the opportunity to perform a community service event that could make a real difference in the lives of a few families.

There is a small apartment building in town that is being used to house families who are victims of domestic violence. They have 2 apartments that currently need rehabilitation (cleaning and painting). One also needs a new sink and toilet. Once these are done new families can immediately move in. The apartments are each 2 bedrooms and 2 bath.

I strongly support this event, with a little work, we can make a big difference to a couple of families who need the help. Continue reading
