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.

It would be to get the University to take a more responsible position with regard to maintaining official contact with faculty after they retire, instead of being laissez faire about it. Past President Gorter proposes that memorial recognition be given at the May meeting to members who died this past year.

A. Niyekawa reported 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. The March-May Newsletter included a one-page note on the advantages that could be 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.

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.
