Young Professionals and Students

The Young Professionals (YP's) are members of the Hawaii Water Environment Association (HWEA), age 35 years and younger. Most of us are new to the profession with less than 10 years of work experience. The goal of our committee is to encourage YP's to get involved with HWEA while meeting fellow YP’s and other professionals within the organization.

For YP questions, please contact Staci Kunitake or Kawika Kaulukukui.
