How Can We Make Your HBL Experience Better?

With everything we do, HBL staff does our best, while also taking the time to reflect on how we can do better. But we couldn’t and can’t do it without amazing supporters like you! That being said, we’re looking to improve HBL's membership program. And who better to ask than HBL's very own members & community with a survey to get your input! This anonymous, short survey is open to everyone. Whether you're a current member, non-member, former member, we want to know your thoughts! The survey will take about 5-8 minutes. Please complete this survey by Friday, December 6th.

Click the button (below) to give your feedback!

Mahalo to everyone who has already completed the survey!
