Featured topics and speakers include: the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities: learn how proposed federal budget and tax policies will affect Hawaii and our sector; Kim Klein, Klein and Roth Consulting: receive information about how changing tax policies can shift your fundraising strategies; local nonprofits will share examples of how they are engaging in public policy advocacy and what tools prove to be most effective; and, in partnership with HANO, there will be an opportunity for board members to build their nonprofit know-how and improve in their roles as ambassadors and advocates for their organization.
