Assessment Process for Hawai‘i Conference UCC

At the 194th ‘Aha Pae‘aina, a proposal to evaluate the mission and ministries of the Hawai‘i Conference and the Hawai‘i Conference Foundation was introduced by delegates. In response, the Conference has hired a consultant, Mr. Alan Oliver, to perform an assessment of the Conference and Foundation. Results from the assessment will be used to develop a strategic plan with the goal of introducing the plan for discussion and approval at the 195th ‘Aha Pae‘aina in June 2017.
