A screening committee has been formed to conduct the search for someone to fill an expected vacancy on the Kamehameha Schools board of trustees.
Applications are being taken for a new trustee to replace Diane Plotts on the board that oversees Kamehameha Schools and its multibillion-dollar investment portfolio.
The trustee screening committee, appointed by the state Probate Court, will present a list of three candidates to the Probate Court. From that list, the court will name the new trustee. The appointee would qualify for a five-year term and could be eligible for an additional five-year term, to be determined by the court.
Plotts’ term expires in June. The other members are Corbett Kalama, chairman, J. Douglas Ing, Micah Kane, and Janeen-Ann Ahulani Olds.
Members of the trustee screening committee are Richard Coons, Wendy B. Crabb, George “Keoki” Freeland, Cheryl L. Kauhane Lupenui, Benjamin M. Matsubara, Wesley Park and Michael E. Rawlins.
Trustees are paid $122,000 per year; the chairperson receives $158,000.
Candidates should submit a resume, cover letter and a statement on their view of the role of a trustee; their vision, goals and objectives for the trust estate; and what they would do to attain those goals.
Nominations should be sent to Trustee Screening Committee, c/o Inkinen & Associates, 1003 Bishop St., Suite 477, Honolulu, HI 96813. Applications may be faxed to 521-2380 or e-mailed to email@example.com. The deadline is June 10.
