Last chance for a heavily discounted room at Aulani Resort for 2016 Halloween

This is the last notice you will receive from UHPA. There are only a few rooms left for this popular membership benefit so if you’re going to go, reserve this now.  No rooms will be available at this rate after September 30th and there is a possibility that all available rooms allocated to us will be sold out before then. Do it now.

We’ve got a special bonus this year: Two Hawaii Food and Wine Festival events will be held at Ko’olina over the same weekend.

This has become one of UHPA’s most popular events and sells out quickly. We again have negotiated extremely good rates this year and invite all UHPA Members to take advantage of this great offer.

Host a Lunch & Learn for home loans / refinancing on your campus

We’re in the planning stages with our partners at HomeStreet Bank to produce a “Lunch & Learn” workshop in the fall of 2016.   Several faculty have asked if we could host this workshop at their campus and we would love to do so. If you think you can get about 10 or so of your colleagues to attend a workshop at your campus, there’s a good chance we can put something together.

Interested? Contact us and we’ll work with you to organize something, preferably in the fall.

We do have a default plan in the works and we’ll adjust it if we get some feedback otherwise.

In the years since UHPA began offering this program, UHPA members have saved a total $133,000 on closing costs by working with the Hometown Home Loan Program.
