KIA News

KCAA Muriel Preschool is getting ready for the next school year and could always use paper - doesn't have to be plain white or any particular size. It could be used on one side, and they'll use the other side. Envelopes of different sizes could also be used for the children in the writing and art area. Feel free to drop them off at 1045 Kawaiahao Street, or call 593-0567 to make other arrangements.

KIA was sad to hear of the passing of David Muldoon who represented Global Technology Corporation. David was a big supporter of the KIA Invitational Golf Tournament as a golfer and someone who always donated prizes.

If you haven't already done so, please visit the Ohana Hale Marketplace in the old Sports Authority location on Ward.

KIA Membership

KIA welcomes members any time throughout the year and hopes that its current members would encourage individuals or companies interested in the Kakaako area, work or play in Kakaako, or have a desire to become a part this association, which began in 1987. The main purpose back then was to be the "voice" of its members to the legislature, state and city administrations and the Hawaii Community Development Authority (HCDA). Since then, however, KIA has surpassed that role and are respected by land owners, developers, legislators/staff, HCDA, as well as small businesses and residents of Kakaako. The two General Membership Meetings and two Networking Events bring members together to learn, interact, and be involved with what is happening in Kakaako. Attached to this newsletter is the KIA Membership Application form to email your circle of businesses, family or friends who would like to become a member of this active association.
