Community Organizer to be Speaker at May 7 meeting
On Tuesday, May 7, 2024, Kai Nishiki will be the speaker at the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset meeting.  Nishiki is well known for her advocacy on issues important to local residents and her dedication to protecting shoreline access for local Maui communities.
Nishiki is the executive director of Nā Papa‘i Wawae ‘Ula’ula and co-executive director of Maui Nui Resiliency Hui, nonprofit associations that advocate for conservation, enhancement of public beach access, preservation of public trust resources, food security, truly affordable housing, and improving and prioritizing the quality of life for our residents. She chaired the Community Plan Advisory Committee for the recent update of the West Maui Community Plan, which, for the first time, included long range planning for sea level rise and coastal erosion. After the devastating wildfires, her nonprofit partnered with many others in the community to provide relief efforts and is currently focused on affordable housing solutions in West Maui.  Nishiki will update our members and guests on these efforts in West Maui.
The meeting will be held at the Aston Paki Maui Resort Ali`i meeting room.  Social begins at 5:00 pm and the meeting begins at 5:30 pm.  A light dinner will be served.  To make reservations to attend the meeting please email Joanne Laird at:
