The Chapter Finishes Behind Honolulu Chinese Jaycees
A steady influx of new members and fun events centered around community service and sports propelled RPJ to second place in the Hawaii Jaycees Parade of Chapters Competition for the first trimester. The chapter finished behind the top ranked Honolulu Chinese Jaycees and ahead of the Filipino Junior Chamber of Commerce. The results were announced at last weekend’s Hawaii Jaycees All-State Convention Awards Banquet at the Pagoda Hotel. In addition to the second place standing, RPJ President Eve Epitome was recognized as one of the state’s top chapter presidents. RPJ Executive Vice President Winston Chow and Corresponding Secretary Elvin Berzabal were also given state presidential merit awards.
The convention also featured workshops by United States Jaycees National Vice President Brian Kavanaugh and Starwood Hotels & Resorts Regional Human Resources Director Nona Tamanaha. RPJ Director-at-Large Anthony Higa attended the training and came away impressed with the material and the speakers.
