Breakfast Keynote

Governor David Ige: Hawaii's Economic Future

PANEL I: Well-being--What is it and How and Why Should We Measure It?
Money matters, but other things do, too. This panel explains basic ideas driving the conference theme:

  • Why track social and environmental (as well as economic) progress?
  • How is well being defined in relation to prosperity?
  • How do we measure the well being of society?

Panelists: John Knox, Hawaii Economic Association; Regina Ostergaard-Klem, HPU; Jennifer Chirico, Susty Pacific

PANEL II: Beyond GDP – Measuring progress and well being in Hawai‘i
This panel presents ways that Hawai‘i might adjust, replace, or add other measures to Gross Domestic Product (GDP) as the standard core metric for tracking progress and prosperity. Panelists will discuss pluses and minuses – and draw connections to the underlying purpose and practical uses – of each approach.

Panelists: Kirsten Oleson, UH, Dept. of Natural Resources & Environmental Management; James Koshiba, Social Entrepreneur & Consultant; Matthew Lynch, co-chair Hawaii Green Growth & UH System Sustainability


Lunch Keynote

Sean McGuire, Benton County Sustainability Coordinator, will provide examples of “Beyond GDP” Measures Driving Government Action across Economic, Social, and Environmental Boundaries

PANEL III: Organizations Balancing Economics, the Environment, and the Community
Many businesses and other organizations now talk about the “Triple Bottom Line” of financial profit, environmental health, and social progress. Panelists will discuss real-life Hawai‘i experiences; what measures make sense; and how much social/environmental goals really matter compared to profit … and if they can add to profit.

Panelists: Anni Peterson, Better Tomorrow; Murray Clay, Ulupono Initiative; Giorgio Caldarone, Kamehameha Schools

PANEL IV: Economic Forecast
The capstone panel is HEA’s traditional forecast by some of Hawai‘i’s leading economists.

Panelists: Eugene Tian, DBEDT; Peter Fuleky, UHERO; Paul Brewbaker, TZ Economics; Joseph Toy, Hospitality Advisors
Shidler Alumni Association members are eligible to register at the "Event Partner" rate ($20 off the regular conference price). Register by Tuesday, October 6 to receive the discount.

UH Mānoa Nursing Dean’s Lecture

Add to Calendar

Venue/Location

The Pacific Club: Honolulu, HI (map)

Date

March 1, 2016 at 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Details

The background and training of nurses, physicians and health care administrators are quite different and it often seems like we come from different planets and speak different dialects. Clinical quality, patient safety and physician, staff, and patient satisfaction depend on optimizing communication and on successful team work. Learning to “play well in the sandbox” is simply a matter of enlightened self-interest. This session focuses on specific methods to build and maintain teamwork between all members of the health care team and on developing a common language.
 
Our Distinguished Speaker:  Dr. Kaplan is President of the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) and national faculty for ACEP. He is Medical Director of the Studer Group and a Director Patient Experience for CEP America. A graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Medical School, he has received many honors.  He served as Chairman of the Dept. of Emergency Medicine, Medical Staff Officer, and Chief of Staff at St. Barnabas Medical Center where he led his system’s emergency departments to the 98th percentile in patient satisfaction and his own emergency department was in the > 90th percentile for 6 years in a row. Dr. Kaplan’s life work has been partnering with physicians, nurses, hospital leadership teams, medical groups, and hospital staff to provide them with tools and tactics to improve patient care while changing the culture of the work environment in a way that inspires and motivates everyone to succeed.
 
The Dean’s Lecture Series: The Dean’s Lecture Series is supported by the Starlit Walk Present: Endowment for the Advancement of Nursing established for UH Mānoa Nursing. The purpose is to bring nationally renowned speakers to educate students, alumni, nursing and other healthcare professionals.

Date

August 2, 2016 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Details

Corruption is rife in today's political climate from Citizens United to the Koch Brothers and other corporation backed lobbyists. The average cost of running a campain excludes most everyday people from running meanwhile the "salary" of an elected official is really small - most town council members, state senators, even Congressman can't afford to commit the time necessary because it won't pay the bills - meaning that only folks with certain types of careers can run (layers, businessman, wealthy). Is the political system rigged against only those who can afford to play the game - run a campaign, survive on political salary which in most cases are very low? Meanwhile, how do we prevent big business from influencing our representatives on important decisions? Should terms limit or caps on political spending be imposed? These and other issues will be taken up on this promising panel.

How does our dedication to "success" ( he who does with the most toys wins) fuel our society and Wall Street in particular? Is it ethical or even practical for top executives to be paid 350 - 500 times their average employee? Is the primary responsibility to maximize profits for share holders? Why are hedge-fund managers taxed at preferable lower rates? Should Wall Street CEO's be "punished" for unethical behavior with $50 million bonuses? Come join four top executives and an extremely knowledgeable educator as they dissect one of the most important ethical dilemmas of our current times: the growing divide between the 1% and the 99%.

Richard T.C. Leung

Richard T.C. Leung (BBA ’81) and his wife May [Wu] (BBA ’79) established the May and Richard Leung Endowed Scholarship Fund for international students from Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao or Taiwan an opportunity to study business at UH Mānoa’s Shidler College of Business.

Leung was vice president of Citibank N.A., country head of DBS Bank Limited in China, Asia regional head of HSBC Bank USA, and managing director of UBS AG., leading global manager of investment, assets and securities.

According to Leung, "the University of Hawaiʻi was a major turning point in my life in helping me achieve my career and personal goals," said Leung. "College education is crucial to one’s development in both mind and soul, and I would like to assist others in the process with this scholarship."

Eddie Lam

Eddie Lam (BBA, 1981) established the Lam Family Endowed Scholarship for undergraduate students from China, Macau and Hong Kong.

“Attending the Shidler College of Business at UH was one of the best decisions I made,” said Lam. “I enjoyed my classes, professors and college activities, and met a lot of people from all over the world. I hope this scholarship will give international students the opportunity to study in Hawai‘i and receive a great education.”

He established the Onlen Fairyland (HK) Company Limited, one of the largest manufacturer and distributor of footwear products in Hong Kong. In 1997, receiving the rights to manufacture famous brands from the Disney Company, Warner Brothers, Shanghai Tsuburaya Plotting Co. Limited, Animation International Ltd., and Sanrio.

The University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Department of Urban and Regional Planning welcomes you to World Town Planning Day on Thursday, November 17.

Hawai‘i is in the midst of the most profound change in agricultural land use in nearly 200 years. In the last 30 years alone we have lost two-thirds of our intensive agricultural land use, witnessed an historic shattering of agricultural land ownership patterns, and have become embroiled in heated debates about how farmers and ranchers should conduct the business of agriculture in the future. What role does planning play in response?

This presentation features a statewide look at our current agricultural footprint and what it foretells about the shape of agricultural land use in the future. Where does our local food come from and how do we grow more to feed ourselves and to contribute to vibrant rural communities?

The event includes a pūpū reception followed by presentations from featured speaker Jeffrey Melrose. Commentators will include Professor Krisna Suryanata and Professor Emeritus G. Kem Lowry.

Venue/Location

Hawai‘i Community College – Pālamanui, Room 102: Kailua-Kona, HI

Date

December 13, 2016 at 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Details

Windward Community College is preparing more graduates to enter Hawai'i’s veterinary workforce by expanding its Vet Assisting Certificate program to the Big Island of Hawai‘i. The WCC Veterinary Assisting program will begin at Hawai‘i Community College – Pālamanui campus in August 2017.

Interested students can attend a free Information Session:
Tuesday, December 13, 2016 at 5:30 p.m.
Hawai‘i Community College – Pālamanui, Room 102
Students will learn about the curriculum and requirements.
More information can be found via the WCC Distance Veterinary Assisting Program Facebook page or by emailing program coordinator Dani Carico.

The Certificate of Achievement in Veterinary Assisting on Hawai‘i Island—offered from August 2017 through May 2018—is designed to provide students with the basic knowledge and skills required to perform effectively as an assistant in a veterinarian’s office, animal shelter or animal research facility. The 2-semester, 31-credit hybrid program includes online coursework in the life sciences, as well as hands-on experience through labs and internships at local veterinary clinics.                                               

“Historically, 80 to 90 percent of students get jobs right away, and some students in the program are getting hired by clinics even before they graduate,” said Windward CC Chancellor Doug Dykstra.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to collaborate with Hawai‘i Community College to bring Windward Community College’s Veterinary Assisting program to students on the Big Island,” said Jenny Kelly, Windward’s Vet Tech program director. “This is the only program of its kind in the state. By expanding to the neighbor islands, we hope to provide essential training to veterinary staff and increase the standard of animal care throughout Hawai‘i.”

Completion of the certificate is required for admission to the Veterinary Technology Associate in Science degree—accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA)—at Windward Community College.

About the Veterinary Technology AS degree program at Windward CC

Windward Community College is the only college in Hawai‘i that offers degree and certificate programs for veterinary paraprofessionals.

The Veterinary Technology AS degree program is an intensive, two-year, 70-credit program that requires many hours of animal handling. Students enrolled in the program receive training in pharmacology, radiology, anesthesiology, surgical assisting, dentistry, nutrition, and veterinary office procedures and will learn how to perform over 300 skill sets deemed essential by the AVMA. Procedures such as dental cleaning, surgical sterilization and x-rays are an essential part of the education.

During the final year of the program, students intern at local veterinary clinics and/or shelters where their skills are evaluated and critiqued by industry professionals. This experience allows students to hone and apply their skills in a real-world setting and serves as a bridge to future employment. For more information about the Vet Tech AS degree, visit windward.hawaii.edu/Veterinary_Studies.

Date

February 1, 2017 at 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The University of Hawai‘i at Hilo will be hosting a public lecture by retired Cal State Professor of Systems Engineering and Distinguished UH Alumna Dr. Harriet Natsuyama. Natsuyama will present on megaliths and writing systems of Hinomoto, ancient Japan on Wednesday, February 1 at 5:30 p.m. in University Classroom Building Room 100.

Background

The people of Hinomoto created several writing systems full of physics and philosophy, and some of their language continues to survive in modern Japanese. A highly sophisticated megalithic system was also developed to function as a solar calendar observatory, which is still keeping track of time deep in the Hida Mountains of central Japan.

“Decoding Rocks and Words of Hinomoto: Hidden Wisdom of Space and Time” will examine the knowledge and wisdom contained in the ancient rocks and words which were recently uncovered and decoded after being hidden from view for thousands of years.

More on Natsuyama

Natsuyama is a 1991 Distinguished Alumna and holds a Doctor of Science degree in astrophysics from Kyoto University. She has authored six books and 200 papers of applied research in mathematical, physical and engineering systems. Natsuyama has made more than a dozen field trips to study megaliths and has been studying ancient writing with Japanese language researchers.

Her talk is sponsored by the College of Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resource Management (CAFNRM) and UH Foundation. For more information call 932-7038.

The Office of Maunakea Management (OMKM), in collaboration with ‘Imiloa Astronomy Center and University of Hawai‘i at Hilo Department of Physics & Astronomy, is launching a new monthly lecture series giving community members unprecedented access to scholars and their knowledge-based work. The Maunakea Speakers Series brings scholars to Hilo to present on diverse subjects including fauna, biodiversity, climate change, botany, geophysics and other topics; all components of the immense resource diversity found on Maunakea.

“Our intent is to provide thought-provoking lectures and presentations while deepening our collective knowledge and understanding of the resources on Maunakea and strengthening educational opportunities —goals we all share,” said OMKM Director Stephanie Nagata.

Birds of Paradise Lost: Evolution, Extinction and Conservation of Hawai‘i’s Birds

The first program under the Maunakea Speaker Series kicks off with a one-hour presentation, Birds of Paradise Lost: Evolution, Extinction and Conservation of Hawaii’s Birds by Dr. Rob Fleischer, Senior Scientist, Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute, National Zoological Park. Dr. Fleischer will discuss Hawai‘i’s native birds and how he and his colleagues use DNA methods to study evolutionary relationships, population genetics, diet, and the impacts and mitigation of introduced disease.

Dr. Fleischer’s Smithsonian research involves application of DNA and genetic analyses to studies in conservation, evolution and animal behavior. His research often focuses on the use of DNA and genetics to document changes in genetic variation and to study the evolutionary interactions between hosts, vectors and infectious disease organisms (such as introduced avian malaria in native Hawaiian birds).

The Birds of Paradise Lost presentation will be held on Thursday, February 9 from 7:00 to 8:00 pm at the UH Hilo Science & Technology Building auditorium (Room 108) and is free and open to interested community members. On-campus parking is available without charge.

For more information visit the Office of Maunakea Management website or contact the UH Hilo Physics and Astronomy department at jconey@hawaii.edu, or 932-7187.

“Hard To Grip” book signing with Emil DeAndreis

Add to Calendar

Venue/Location

Campus Center 301: Hilo, HI

Date

September 5, 2017 at 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Details

Former University of Hawai‘i Hilo baseball player and author Emil DeAndreis will be holding a book signing for his newest book Hard To Grip on Tuesday, September 5 at UH Hilo Campus Center 301 (11:30 a.m.). *The September 2 event at Basically Books has been canceled.

Book summary

In 2008, after a record-breaking career as a D1 college baseball player, Emil DeAndreis' life seemed set: He was twenty-three, in great shape, and had just been offered a contract to pitch professionally in Europe. Then his body fell apart.

It started with elbow stiffness, then swelling in his wrist. Soon, his fingers were too bloated to grip a baseball. He had Rheumatoid Arthritis, a disease that causes swelling and eventual deterioration of the joints, mostly targeting old people and women.

Hard To Grip tells the story of a young man’s body giving out when he needs it most. It chronicles an ascending sports career, the ups and downs of life in the NCAA, and the challenges of letting go of pro baseball due to a dehumanizing condition. In a series of humorous anecdotes, Emil takes the reader on his bittersweet journey of a young man’s having to grapple with an “old woman’s disease.” From striking out future major leaguer All Stars, to sitting in support groups; from breaking university records, to barely making it up the stairs; from language barriers with Chinese healers to figuring out how to be employed as a vegetable, this book unveils the disease with humor and fearless honesty through the eyes of an unlikely victim. This memoir is an honest, rueful and at times hilarious story about learning to come to terms with a new reality, and an inspiring account of how Emil learned to run with the disease and not from it.

Uehara was born and raised in Hawi Camp 17 on the North Kohala coast and became a leading exponent of “highly-weathered” tropical/subtropical soils, particularly the mechanisms by which the soils can retain plant nutrients in the face of severe leaching under heavy rainfall conditions.

Gillman spent 10 years as a Senior Principal Research Scientist for the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation in Canberra, Australia and now works as a private consultant in soil science.

Palikū Theatre presents the “King and I”

Add to Calendar

Venue/Location

Palikū Theatre: Honolulu, HI (map)

Date

October 1, 2017 (all day)

Details

Palikū Theatre presents the King and I from September 8 through October 1, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 4 p.m. Based on “Anna and the King of Siam,” this production continues the legacy of legendary theater director Ron Bright.

About the King and I

East versus West makes for a dramatic, richly textured and ultimately uplifting tale of enormous fascination. It is 1862 in Siam when an English widow, Anna Leonowens, and her young son arrive at the Royal Palace in Bangkok, having been summoned by the King to serve as tutor to his many children and wives. The King is largely considered to be a barbarian by those in the West, and he seeks Anna’s assistance in changing his image, if not his ways. With both keeping a firm grip on their respective traditions and values, Anna and the King grow to understand and, eventually, respect one another, in a truly unique love story. Along with the dazzling score, the incomparable Jerome Robbins ballet, “The Small House of Uncle Thomas,” is one of the all-time marvels of the musical stage.

Add to Calendar

Venue/Location

UH Hilo Science & Technology Building, Room 108: Hilo, HI

Date

October 17, 2017 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Details

The Office of Maunakea Management, ‘Imiloa Astronomy Center, and University of Hawai‘i at Hilo Department of Physics & Astronomy, are pleased to announce that the next monthly scholar-focused presentation has been set for Tuesday, October 17. Starting at 7 p.m., Dr. Ken Hon, Professor of Geology and Interim Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo, will examine what we know about the growth and evolution of Maunakea volcano and its complicated relationship with its nearby mountain siblings Kohala and Maunaloa. This exciting free lecture will be held at the UH Hilo Science & Technology Building room 108. On-campus parking is open and available without charge after 4 p.m.

Dr. Ken Hon is an enthusiastic instructor of Physical Geology, Volcanoes and Earthquakes, Geology of the Hawaiian Islands, Mineralogy, Petrology, Volcanology, and Remote Sensing, with his research focusing on these same topics.  His work concentrates on Hawai‘i’s basaltic volcanoes and large ash-flow caldera eruptions. Dr. Hon is perhaps best known for his work on the mechanics of pāhoehoe lava emplacement.

Maunakea Speaker Series

The Maunakea Speaker Series is a monthly scholar-focused presentation offered as a partnership among the Office of Maunakea Management, 'Imiloa Astronomy Center, and the University of Hawai'i at Hilo Department of Physics & Astronomy. This collaborative venture gives the community unprecedented access to fascinating research taking place on Maunakea and other topics unique to the Island of Hawai'i. A venue for scholars to share their stories and learn from discussion, the series promotes understanding and collaboration across all sectors of the community, while addressing the goals of the University of Hawai'i at Hilo.

For more information visit malamamaunakea.org or call (808) 933-0734.

About Office of Maunakea Management

The Office of Maunakea Management is charged with day-to-day management of Mauna Kea Science Reserve as prescribed in the Master Plan. The adoption of the Mauna Kea Science Reserve Master Plan by the University of Hawai’i Board of Regents in June 2000 marked a critical milestone in the management of Maunakea.

Meetings and public hearings spanning a period of nearly two years went into the formulation of the Master Plan, which established management guidelines for the next 20 years. The Master Plan reflected the community’s deeply rooted concerns over the use of Maunakea, including respect for Hawaiian cultural beliefs, protection of environmentally sensitive habitat, recreational use of the mountain, and astronomy research.

It places the focus of responsibility locally with the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo. The UH-Hilo Chancellor established the Office of Maunakea Management and the Board of Regents established the Maunakea Management Board in the fall of 2000. The Maunakea Management Board in turn formed Kahu Kū Mauna, a council comprised of Hawaiian cultural resource persons to serve as advisors.

The mission of the Office of Maunakea Management is to achieve harmony, balance and trust in the sustainable management and stewardship of Mauna Kea Science Reserve through community involvement and programs that protect, preserve and enhance the natural, cultural and recreational resources of Maunakea while providing a world-class center dedicated to education, research and astronomy.

Honolulu CC Executive AA informational session

Venue/Location

Hale ʻAina (Cafeteria), Honolulu CC: Honolulu, HI (map)

Date

October 26, 2017 at 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Details

Honolulu Community College has created a new evening degree program that will start in the spring 2018 semester for students who work or have daytime commitments. The College invites all interested individuals to learn more about the Executive AA. program by attending an informational session on Thursday, October 26, 2017.

Sign up at http://honolulu.hawaii.edu/executiveaa

“Taking the first step is the hardest, but it’s a worthwhile investment that will greatly impact your future for the better,” shares Jennifer Higa-King, interim dean of University College at Honolulu CC.

College graduates, on average, earned 56 percent more than high school grads in 2015, according to data compiled by the Economic Policy Institute. That was up from 51 percent in 1999 and is the largest such gap in EPI’s figures dating to 1973.

During the informational session interested individuals will be taken through the admissions process, learn more about the program of classes, and understand the variety of campus resources available to them.

The Executive AA is an affordable alternative for people who are considering college for the first time, or have some college experience and want to complete their degree. With classes offered in the evening and online this program is an alternative to the traditional day-time class schedule. The smaller cohort environment will provide the learner with the support services that will help them accomplish their academic goals.

21st Annual Noble Chef Gala

Add to Calendar

Venue/Location

Fairmont Kea Lani: Wailea, Maui (map)

Date

October 28, 2017 at 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Details

University of Hawaiʻi Maui College Culinary Arts Program is proud to announce the details for their 2017 Noble Chef fundraising gala on October 28th, 2017. Held at the Fairmont Kea Lani, the event will feature students working alongside Maui’s most notable chefs in a not-to-be-missed culinary journey to the Hawaiʻi of yester-year. Reception begins at 5:30 p.m. followed by sit-down dinner at 7 p.m.

This year’s theme “Hawaiian Renaissance” delights the senses with décor, fashion and traditional local entertainment. Utilizing local produce, ingredients and techniques paired with the islands rich culture, the student chefs will work alongside their professional mentors to create an experience that will transport you back to days gone by of old Hawaiʻi.

Maui’s top celebrity chefs will present appetizers at the cocktail reception created and prepared by a chef student team. Prior to the event, UH Maui College Culinary Arts students work side-by-side with the chefs in their restaurants for hands-on training. Being involved in the process—from developing a menu item through the delivery of locally sourced, world-class cuisine—prepares students as they “learn by doing” for their transformation into the next generation of professional chefs.

This year’s celebrity chefs include:

  • Lee Anderson—Sugar Beach Events
  • Isaac Bancaco—Kaʻana Kitchen at Andaz Maui
  • Robert Barrera—Cane and Canoe at Montage Kapalua
  • Lyndon Honda—Sheraton Maui Resort
  • Travis Morrin—Three’s Bar and Grill
  • Geno Sarmiento—Nick’s Fish Market
  • Alvin Savella and Kenneth Sniffen—The Banyan Tree Restaurant at the Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua
  • Roger Stettler—Taverna
  • Ryan Urig—The Grand Wailea Resort

The reception will be followed by a sit-down, coursed dinner prepared and served by the UH Maui College Culinary Arts Program faculty, Chef Tom Lelli and Chef Craig Omori, and students. The evening wraps up with a surprise dessert finale by Four Seasons Resort Maui Executive Pastry Chef Bruce Trouyet and a special pastry art presentation by UH Maui College Culinary Arts Program Coordinator and Pastry Chef Instructor Teresa Shurilla and her students.

After sampling the appetizers, guests can cast their vote for their favorite appetizer, and the winning celebrity chef team will be recognized on stage.

Handcrafted cocktails featuring local island producers Maui Winery, Hawaiʻi Sea Spirits and Haliʻimaile Distillery will be created by master mixologists, and a selection of fine wines will be available during the reception and paired with the dinner courses.

The Noble Chef is UH Maui College Culinary Arts Program’s largest annual fundraiser, with proceeds directly supporting culinary education, student career advancement, and community service. Proceeds are allocated toward student scholarships, student field experiences and internships, student culinary competitions, program enrichment and enhancement and professional development for culinary faculty.
