Hawaii NBCTs Website!

We now have a network website!  
You will find resources for new candidates, current NBCTs, and community supporters.  Please visit the site and look around!  There are photo albums from our last two events before the lockdown and a directory with all Hawaii NBCTs listed by certificate area.  If you have questions or suggestions for other things to include, please let me know.  
Please join us again by completing our new membership form.  Going forward this new database will be the one we use to communicate with you and keep you informed of upcoming opportunities.
Thank you all so much for your continued support of National Board Certification.  Please share this information with other NBCTs, Candidates and Future Candidates that you know.  Some current members did not get an email with this information because their email address changed or wouldn’t accept a mass mailing.
