HAPA Young Leaders Travel to Japan for Leadership Training and Community Service Initiative

HAPA Young Leaders Travel to Japan for Leadership Training and Community Service Initiative

The Hawaii Asia Pacific Association (HAPA) will be sending a delegation of 11 local business executives to Tokyo and Kesennuma, Japan, from Aug. 24 through Aug. 29, as part of the organization’s Executive in Residence Program – Japan Experience to participate in an intense, four-day cultural and leadership training. In line with the theme of the trip, which is “Leading from the Heart,” the Hawaii group will team up with business and community leaders from Japan to perform volunteer activities to help families and businesses in the Tohoku region that were devastated by the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami. The Hawaii and Japan participants will also identify a long-term project on which they will hopefully collaborate for years to come.
