This is based on a history by Agnes Niyekawa written probably in 1995 or 1996, supplemented with documents from the following years. Corrections and additions are most welcome.

Following up on a suggestion made by Chancellor Dick Kosaki at a reception for retirees in the Spring of 1985, one Wytze Gorter sent out 341 questionnaires to retired faculty on September 16th to gauge their interest in establishing a retiree's association. All but five of the 201 who responded supported the idea. All but one of them were willing to pay "as much as $5" dues, and 75 volunteered to help organize and/or operate the association.

The first meeting was held 22 January 1986, a party in the Campus Center Ballroom, with Gorter the first president. By that time, the FRA had changed its name to FRAUHM, but it was noted that the "Faculty" at the beginning of the name and the "Manoa" at the end were not meant to exclude retirees from other campuses, or retired staff.

Important Board Decisions and Discussion
03/17/87   Gorter writes to the Coalition of Hawaii State-County Retirees Association,

  It, therefore, will not endorse candidates for political office or take official 
  positions on public issues."

  ceremony, the death of retired members of the faculty."

09/23   Since new officers assume their position on July 1, after the May general 
        membership meeting files need to be turned over from old officers to new 
        officers during the interim.  Clarified that dues paid by >new members in 
        May/June would be accounted to the following year's membership dues.
11/04   W. Gorter confirmed that past Board policy was to permit all retirees from all 
        UH campuses to join FRAUHM.
        "Manoa" was inserted in the name in case other campuses form retiree groups of
        their own campus members in the future.

04/21   With regard to UH Foundation's $25 annual service fee, it was pointed out 
        that working through the UH Foundation eliminates the need to register as a 
        non-profit organization and the filing of yearly tax returns.

        the results of a survey.  Of 240 questionnaires attached to the September 
        Newsletter, 41 (17%) had been returned. Many of them favored more socializing 
	and opportunities to keep in touch with former colleagues.
        Mona Chock, UH Alumni Affairs Administrator, spoke to the board about tangible benefits
        derived by members by FRAUHM's affiliation with UHAA.

        derived from FRAUHM's affiliation with UHAA and a "Prefernce Response" form.  
	There were 24 responses.  Six were already UHAA members, three were life members, 
	and 15 expressed interest in dual membership in FRAUHM and UHAA.

Important Board Decisions and Discussions
08/14   It was decided to change Board/General meeting dates from the fourth Thursday to the second,
        to make it easier to obtain UH administrators as speakers.  Because many FRAUHM members had
        expressed a desire for more socializing, it was decided to use Campus Center cafeteria 
        dining rooms, giving those who came at 12:00 an hour to socialize before the 1:00 meeting.
        Affiliation with UHAA remained unaccomplished; FRAUHM's not being incorporated created some
        problems, and the expected benefits would not be forthcoming.
02/08   R. Berger found support for his idea of producing a membership directory and promised a draft
        for the next meeting.
03/10   R. Berger's membership directory draft was reviewed, and final format determined.

Another Significant Change
	Until this year, meetings had taken place at 3:00 or 3:30, in the nearest thing to a conference
room in the speaker's Department. Dr. Niyekawa started having the meetings in one of the smaller rooms at
the cafeteria, at noon. This change, plus notices in Ka Leo inviting anyone to attend, resulted in much
greater attendance thenceforth.
