Regents Candidate Advisory Council
Posted: Oct 1, 2010

HONOLULU – Chairman Roy Takeyama of the Regents Candidate Advisory Council (RCAC), has formally announced the call for nominations to the University of Hawai‘i Board of Regents (BOR).
There will be vacancies in the following seats on the Board of Regents for terms beginning July 1, 2011:
  • Two (2) City and County of Honolulu
  • One (1) County of Hawaiʻi (West Hawai‘i)
Additionally, the RCAC will also accept applications for a Maui County seat, currently occupied by Regent James Haynes, whose term ended on June 30, 2010. The names of the finalists for this seat were presented to Governor Lingle during the previous recruitment period. However, Governor Lingle’s nominee for this seat was denied consent by the Hawai‘i State Senate and, as of this date, has not been filled.
"The Regents play a crucial role in overseeing the management and operation of the university," said Takeyama. "Individuals who apply should have a passion for the University of Hawai‘i and have a desire to serve the community as well as work to enrich the lives of students at Hawai‘i’s only public higher education institute.”
Application materials and procedures as well as complete descriptions of regent’s responsibilities are available online at or may be requested by calling 692-1218 or email at
Applications will be accepted through November 1, 2010.
