OHA’s Board of Trustees (BOT) is composed of nine trustees who are elected to their seats in public elections open to all State of Hawai‘i voters. Four of the nine positions on the Board are designated as at-large seats representing the state as a whole, while the other five trustees represent each of the following districts: Hawai‘i Island, Maui, Moloka‘i and Lāna‘i, O‘ahu, and Kaua‘i and Ni‘ihau. Although there are residency requirements for candidates seeking the district seats, all voters statewide are permitted to vote in each of the OHA races. Trustees are elected to their seats for four-year terms, and there is no limit on the number of terms a trustee may serve. The Board of Trustees is responsible for setting OHA policy and managing the agency’s trust. The Board meets regularly at the agency’s headquarters in Honolulu, and at least once annually on each of the major islands.
