Any current HSS member in good standing can run for election for a position they desire. All that is required to fulfill your duty as a board member is to dedicate a minimum of one day a month (normally weekends) to attend board meetings and participate in various committees and groups as assigned. The qualifications, skills, and experience needed to be a board member are: good organizational skills, communication skills, dedication and willingness to work as a team but most importantly an understanding and appreciation for the diversity of ethnic groups that make up the culture of Hawai'i and have the Aloha Spirit.
