HANO’s one-day conference promises to deliver non-stop inspiration, information and interaction designed to help nonprofits put game-changing ideas to work. The third annual Hawaiʻi Nonprofit Conference brings together more than 300 professionals at the largest gathering of nonprofits in the state of Hawaiʻi.

Informational workshops and training sessions by local and national leaders will include more sub-sectors, career levels and decision-makers than ever before, including emerging community leaders who are searching for meaningful volunteer board positions.

Participants representing nonprofits, businesses, foundations and other organizations will share conversations about their current efforts, and learn about innovations, challenges and solutions across the sector.
Staff and board members will bring back to their organizations the expert knowledge, inspirational ideas and resource solutions they need to maximize their impact on our communities.

Our breakfast keynote session, “The Most Important Game-Changing Questions That Nonprofits Need to Ask Themselves Today,” will stimulate conversations during the conference and encourage these discussions to continue in the board and staff meetings at your agency. Join Hawaiʻi Community Foundation’s Kelvin Taketa and moderator Tom Kelly for a conversation based on challenging questions uncovered in HCF’s latest nonprofit industry study.

Our lunch keynote speaker, David Erickson, will share ideas from the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco’s recent book, Investing in What Works for America’s Communities, that support building communities that are healthy places to live, learn, work, and play—places that put families on more solid economic footing. The presentation includes game-changing strategies that move out of traditional policy silos, approach problems in a more holistic manner and encourage partners to both work and invest together to increase impact. David Erickson is Manager of the Center for Community Development Investments at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco and editor of the journal “Community Development Investment Review.”
