Aloha fellow BOMA Hawaii Members!
Happy New Year! I hope you and yours had a wonderful and safe holiday season. As your President for this coming year, I'm humbled to represent you as we experience another great year ahead.
This year we have three new members on the Board of Directors: Corinne Hiromoto of PM Realty Group, Douglas Kai of Howard Hughes Corp., and Jarrett Walters of Hawaiian Building Maintenance. I am very excited to be able to work and get to know this new team. I want to thank former 2012 Board Members for their participation: Angie Hodge of CB Richard Ellis and Keith Muraoka of ThyssenKrupp Elevators. We appreciate all the time and effort in making 2012 successful.
We will be cranking up in a couple weeks with the annual BOMA/CCIM/IREM Real Estate Forecast where we have set up a great panel in every aspect of Real Estate. This seminar is very informal and we hope to see you there. Subsequently, we will be having our kick off BOMA Hawaii Meeting once again at the Hawaii Prince on February 12th, so please mark your calendar as you don't want to miss this one!
I would like to send thanks to returning and new 2013 Platinum Sponsors: Tiera Covington at ABM Family of Services, Guy & Dana Akasaki from Commercial Roofing & Waterproofing, Jim/Jarrett Walters & Karl Fujii from Hawaiian Building Maintenance, Bert Yorita of Mitsubishi Elevator, John Tavares from Standard Parking, Charles Beeck of Tropical Roofing & Raingutters, David Dunham from Kawika's Painting, Inc., and George Benda at Chelsea Group, Ltd.
Lastly, I want to encourage all members to get involved with one of our committees. This is where you can really get to know other members and learn more of what BOMA can offer. Please do not hesitate to call or reach out to us if you want to get more involved in BOMA. Let's strive in making 2013 a great year!
