The 60-minute webinars are offered as a full financial management curriculum, or can be chosen a la carte for organizations seeking to address specific business challenges.

Take your advocacy to the next level by taking our Media 101 Workshop!

Frustrated at trying to move your organization without much success? Disappointed that your staff is not "buying in"? Feeling the pressure from your Board to deliver on your vision?

Join us for this training to learn important change management principles and have an opportunity to put these principles in a practical action plan. At the training, using your real work life change initiative, you’ll identify ways to remove the obstacles and build energy for change, create a specific practical action plan that can be used right away back at the office, and understand how to keep yourself focused and motivated as the change catalyst. Thanks to generous support from the Freeman Foundation, we're able to offer this training at highly subsidized registration rates.

Are you ready for the legislative session? Is your voice -- and that of your members, clients and community -- being heard in the policy-making process? This Nonprofit Advocacy Webinar will help you get started! This training is designed for 501(c)(3) nonprofit staff, board members, and volunteers who are new to policy advocacy or who need a "refresher" on the basics.

HANO partnered with Hugh Jones of the Tax and Charities Division of the Hawaii Attorney General’s office in this compliance briefing. During the recording, Hugh reviews the basics of Hawaii's charitable solicitation registration process, talks about what nonprofits need to know about Commercial Co-Venturing, and shares recent updates to the compliance laws and answer audience questions.
