Prior to the 2011 Convention in Hawaii, there was a Young Men’s Association Convention in 1974, 37 years ago at which had 1,200 participants. Rev. Iwata, an adviser for the Convention committee and a participant in the 1974 event, had explained that the 2011 Convention was the first time this kind of even was done completely in English and that the preparation and planning were put heavily on the shoulders on the people of Hawaii and collaborated with staff in US Mainland and Japan.
