Full Job Description

We are seeking an Executive Director (operating as an independent contractor) to drive all operational aspects of the Hawaii Bankers Association.


Legislative Advocacy

Key function as Executive Director is legislative advocacy to protect the Hawaii Bankers Association (HBA) members’ interests. This includes advocating HBA’s position at the State Capitol by submitting testimony to the relevant committee(s), appearing at hearings, and meeting with legislators.

The role also includes driving the work of the HBA sub-committees, including the Human Resources Committee and Education Committee, as well as the ad hoc committees (Legislative, Cybersecurity, and BSA/ AML Committees). This role includes driving agenda creation, as well as follow-up.

Finally, the Executive Director will manage the operational and administrative aspects of the HBA, including financial operations (budgeting and preparing quarterly operating statements), submission of lobbying reports, making required tax filings, and facilitating dissemination of ABA communication.
