2016 HKF General Membership & Board of Directors meeting is Feb 14

Added on by J.K. SHISHIDO.

The Hawaii Kendo Federation's General Membership and Board of Directors meetings will be held on Feb. 14, 2016 at 3:30pm at Myohoji Temple's Social Hall.


Looking at the minutes of last year's General Membership meeting I see the thing was only 16 minutes long. Immediately after the General Membership meeting, the Board of Directors meeting will be held. I'm relatively new to the Board so I am super curious what would happen if non-Board members want to stay and listen.

Anyway, here are the documents relating to the upcoming meetings that I received tonight from HKF Secreatary P Sone:

Minutes of the 2015 General Membership meeting
Minutes of the previous Board of Directors meeting, dated October 25, 2015
Agenda for the upcoming General Membership meeting and the Board of Directors meeting (February 14, 2016)

Congratulations to Wesley Fujimoto & Mike Sone - already winners.

Last Tuesday the candidates received a request from Election Officer Phyllis Sone to write a 300 word statement about ourselves. This was optional but everyone submitted one.

Read the candidates' statements.
Secret Ballot.
