Island Councils

A key component to HILT’s leadership structure is how our statewide Board of Directors is complimented by island councils from each island.  This approach engages local leadership and honors the unique character and conservation priorities of each island.  Community leaders, participating through their local island council and working with HILT staff, will support their neighborhood conservation projects.  The statewide organization will support these projects.  Hawaiian Islands Land Trust will protect the most important conservation lands regardless of the county in which they are located.  Having a board with effective representation from all counties ensures a balanced perspective for the organization.
