One waiver covers all EMI hikes for this quarter. Call in your waiver request to Candyce at 579-9516 well in advance to make an appointment for when you can sign it. . Then go to EMI’s Pa’ia office at 497 Baldwin Avenue to sign the waiver. You will need to call to make sure someone will be there. Waivers CANNOT be mailed, faxed or emailed. Sierra club does not make the rules. EMI does. Please be considerate of EMI staff time and pick up waiver 5 days in advance whenever possible. THE WAIVER MUST BE BROUGHT ON THE HIKE AND SHOWN TO THE HIKE LEADER. Mahalo
