EARLY REGISTRATION DISCOUNT EXTENDED TO  SEPTEMBER 5

The Eleventh Annual Nonprofit Organizations One-day Seminar, sponsored by Chaminade University, will take place on Friday, Sept. 19, 2014, from 7:45 a.m. (registration) to 4:30 p.m., at the Pagoda Hotel in Honolulu.

The seminar will provide useful information on current issues and changing requirements that affect every nonprofit and provide insights that will help organizations deal with the unique challenges facing them today.

Experts will guide attendees through the tricky maze of tax-exempt compliance and review the categories and governing instruments for tax-exempt organizations. They will also update attendees on new laws, which protect a nonprofit organization’s status, the audit accounting standard, use of tax-exempt entities, and strategies for maintaining a tax-exempt status.

The lineup of speakers include Charles P. Rettig of Hochman, Salkin, Rettig, Toscher & Perez, P.C. of Beverly Hills, California, Hugh Jones of the Department of the Attorney General, Honolulu, Hawaii, Benjamin Brower, Administrative Rules Specialist, State of Hawaii, Terry George, President of Harold K.L. Castle Foundation in Kailua, Reg Baker, Executive Vice President of HMAA, Kilikina Mahi, Consultant at KM Consulting, Richard Kido, Associate Professor of Accounting at Chaminade University, and Wayne Tanna, Professor of Accounting at Chaminade University.

Registration fee is $175.00 per person if registering by September 5, 2014; thereafter is $200.00 per person.   Discount rates are being offered to HANO, HAIS, and HAPA members.

Articulation Agreements Make Physical Therapy Doctorate and Physicians Assistant Masters Degree Possible for CUH Students

UNIVERSITY OF DAYTON AND CHAMINADE UNIVERSITY CREATE TWO NEW PATHWAYS FOR CHAMINADE STUDENTS INTERESTED IN POSTGRADUATE STUDIES IN HEALTH CAREERS

Students from Chaminade University who want to become physical therapists or physician assistants now have a special pathway to make their dreams come true.

Chaminade University of Honolulu and its Marianist sister university, the University of Dayton, have entered into two articulation agreements for qualified Chaminade students who want to become physical therapists and physician assistants.  A recent ceremony took place in Ohio in the President’s Suite at the University of Dayton, where articulation agreements leading to the Doctorate in Physical Therapy and Masters in Physician Assistant were officially signed.

“On behalf of Chaminade, we really appreciate the possibilities that this creates for our students.  This agreement with the University of Dayton opens a new door for qualified Chaminade students who wish to pursue postgraduate degrees in health care fields, “ said Bro. Bernard Ploeger, SM, president of Chaminade University.  “Increasing opportunities for our students to participate in will benefit the larger Hawaii community through the work of highly trained professionals graduating from Chaminade in the health sciences.”

Dr. Daniel Curran, president of University of Dayton, said “I’m very pleased anytime that our two institutions work together,”   “One thing that we both believe is to continue to do this so that our students are going to both institutions, and back and forth.  This is something that we can work toward harder on.  Chaminade is a great institution, strong leadership, and good things going on.  It’s great for the University of Dayton to be able to affiliate academically more and more.  I think this is the program that will attract students.  When you’re in Hawaii and you see the need for health care professionals of all disciplines, I think this is the natural connection.  This is a product of a lot of hard work, thanks to all of you.”

Dr. Kevin Kelly, University of Dayton’s dean of School of Education and Health Sciences, added, “We are very hopeful that this is going to be a vehicle to bring students from Chaminade to our program.  We believe that Chaminade students have a lot to offer us and look forward to putting this agreement into action.”

Brother Edward Brink, SM, Assistant Provincial for Education, who initiated and promoted this partnership reflected, “All I can say about that is I just had an idea that this would fit from my attendance at board meetings at Chaminade and Dayton.  There is clearly a need for health care professionals in Hawaii and people who understand the care of native people from Hawaii.  Thank you to everyone who has made this a reality.”

Chaminade students who successfully complete program requirements will be able to take advantage of reserved seats at University of Dayton for these two professional degrees.  The partnership is of special value as these two degrees are not offered in the state of Hawaii – requiring students to travel to the mainland to pursue studies in these professions.
