Over lunch, John will: briefly review last year's presentation; provide an opportunity for participants to share your progress during the past year; facilitate a group discussion about how to address obstacles and move your fundraising program forward. This is an opportunity to talk story, learn from each other's successes (and failures), and discuss Hawaii Island's training needs for 2018. 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. at Hawaii Innovation Center in Hilo, 117 Keawe Street (please park on Kalakaua Street). Cost: This session is FREE.
