    There is sadly no local chapter in Hawaii. I was aiming for a larger
    conference. It is very expensive to travel to Hawaii for most so I
    think a larger effort is prudent to make the trip worth it. I am
    happy to be boots on the ground. I was hoping to do something in
    coordination with the foundation.<br>
