*Kokua for Maui

The Maui Fires that began 8 August 2023 resulted in the most lethal in the country over the last 100 years. By coming together, our island - our people - are resolved to respond and recover. The road to a “new normal” for Maui Island is just starting…and we need help.

By participating at conference this year, you will be supporting Maui and its people. With your help, our goal is to gather 130 security professionals and partners across the state. In doing so, the Maui County Hotel & Resort Security Association intends to provide $10,000.00 of the conference registration fees towards the recovery and restoration efforts, through a local non-profit organization.

Additionally, we are allocating 10 slots (with a completed registration) to our law enforcement/fire partners here on Maui, at no charge.

We reach out to all of our security professionals and partners across all sectors in the State of Hawaii to join us: Kokua for Maui!
