The largest known group of members to travel "off island"--away from Hawai'i--to a FANHS National Biennial Conference, participated in the FANHS National 16th. Biennial Conference, hosted by the FANHS Metro NY Chapter, during June 22-26, 2016.
Some of Hawai'i FANHS members, assisted by a fashion designer from Hawai'i, participated in the FANHS National 1st. Fashion Show. Hawaii's participants now hold great New York fashion runway bragging rights. One of our HSC's directors was awarded a very special prize for her ensemble.
Several directors and members made informative presentations on the history and present-day lives of Filipinas and Filipinos in Hawai'i. These presentations were appreciated by the national and international conference attendees.
FANHS-HSC, with the help of a special friend and donor, presented its first $500.00 scholarship to enable a young student to attend the 16th Biennial FANHS National Conference.
