HE‘E encourages member organizations to collaborate, share resources, and amplify their voices. HE‘E is supported by member organizations, voting and non-voting, as well as individuals. Representatives of voting member organizations vote on action items while individual and non-voting participants may collaborate on all efforts within the coalition.
A voting member representative of an organization will need to show organizational support when representing the interests of the organization within the coalition and voting on action items, in the form of this resolution from their Board of Directors. A copy of a voting membership form can be downloaded here.
A non-voting member representative and individual will need to acknowledge that while they are able to collaborate and participate in all efforts within the coalition, they will not vote on action items. A copy of a non-voting membership form can be downloaded here.
The community at large is welcome to attend any of the coalition meetings and share input.
HE‘E members receive news updates and meet on a regular basis. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
HE‘E’s Coalition Director provides administrative and logistical coordination to allow for the efficient and collaborative functioning of the coalition.
Introduction of Action Items
The Coalition convenes meetings regularly to discuss actions occurring at the Department of Education, and policy actions occurring at the Board of Education and the Hawaiʻi State Legislature. Through those discussions, Coalition action item(s) are formed.
The Coalition Director will then send the item(s) out to the voting membership for a vote. If a 75% modified consensus is reached, the item will be passed.
