The Regents Candidate Advisory Council (RCAC) has initiated the recruitment process for three seats on the University of Hawaiʻi Board of Regents. Nominations are now being accepted for an At-Large seat, a Hawaiʻi County seat and a Maui County seat. Regents Michael Dahilig, Barry Mizuno and Artemio Baxa currently hold these seats, and their terms will expire on June 30, 2013.

As mandated by law, RCAC must present the names of at least two finalists for each seat to the governor within 120 days prior to the expiration of a term. Governor Abercrombie’s appointments from this list are subject to Hawaiʻi State Senate consent and confirmation and will serve for five years beginning July 1, 2013.

With the exception of the At-Large seat, candidates for the Hawaiʻi County and Maui County seats must be residents of that county.
