Aloha Members of the Environmental Caucus of Hawai’i,

I wanted to remind you all that we have an important General Membership Meeting tomorrow, Sunday. We will be voting on a number of important issues, so please try to attend. Here are the details:
Environmental Caucus’s next General Membership Meeting will be held:

Date:             Sunday, September 18, 2001

Time:             1:30 pm to 3:30 pm

Location:       State Democratic Headquarters
1050 Ala Moana Blvd, #2660
Honolulu, HI 96814
(808) 596-2980

Neighbor Island teleconference number:
(218) 632-0550
Participant Access Code:

Proposed Agenda:

o   1:00 Room Open
o   1:30 Special Announcement from Chair Gary Hooser
o   Report on Bylaw Updates and Vote to approve proposed changes

  • We would like to expand the Steering Committee so that each neighbor island has a voting representative
  • We have been told that now that our Caucus is official, we need to change the name of the Steering Committee to Executive Committee
  • We would like to create a way for absent Steering Committee members (or should I say Executive Committee members) to vote by proxy.  Currently, in order to vote, members must be present.
  • At the meeting, we intend to present these changes to you and ask that you vote to accept them

o   Voting for new Executive Committee Members:

  • Christian Adams had to resign from the Steering Committee because of his ever-filling schedule. We will be looking to fill this position.
  • We would also like to vote for any new At-Large Neighbor Island Representatives should the bylaw changes be approved.
  • IMPORTANT: If you would like to be nominated to the Steering Committee, please contact and indicate your interest.
  • We are still looking for someone willing to take on the job of Secretary. Mike has been swamped has had a hard time fulfilling his office.

o   Overview of our Strategic Plan for the next legislative session, including the need for Primary Citizen Advocates
o   Follow-Up on our “Roundtable Discussion Series, including “A Caucus Recommendation Letter” for moving forward.
o   Announcement of Caucus Anniversary Event scheduled for the 22nd of October at 6:00 pm.

As you can see by the proposed agenda, we have a lot of important information to discuss and vote on. Please make it a priority to attend.

Finally, I am hoping to test a new computer teleconference option called Wiggio. If you cannot attend in person, are computer literate, and would like to try attending through video conferenceing, please let me know via email. I will send you an invitation to our video conference group on Wiggio. We will be testing it before the meeting (about 1:00). If all goes well, we will have the video conference connected for the entire meeting.
