MA‘ALAEA VILLAGE ASSOCIATION (MVA)
Ma‘alaea Village Association (MVA) was formed by a small group of committed Ma‘alaea property owners after the demise of the Ma‘alaea Community Association, which served the Ma‘alaea community from 1988-2016. MVA received its federal 501C3 nonprofit corporation status in August, 2017.
The purpose of MVA is to protect the unique community of Ma‘alaea Village; improve communication between stakeholders; and educate the Ma‘alaea/Maui communities and elected officials on the need to preserve and share Ma’alaea Village’s rural, ocean-oriented sense of place, for the benefit of all.
As of January, 2023 MVA has over 220 annual, lifetime and founders’ circle members, plus over 500 subscribers to our newsletter list. Because MVA is an all-volunteer organization, communication is via email and social media.
We invite you to join us. Your membership supports MVA’s efforts to preserve Ma‘alaea’s unique seaside ambiance and rural character.
