HANOCON 2021: Shifting Paradigms

HANOCON is our largest annual gathering of nonprofit professionals–as well as sector allies, supporters, and advocates–to network, learn, share ideas, collaborate, and partner.

In 2021, HANOCON remains Virtual!  Although safety concerns around large gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic continue to prevent us from holding an in-person conference this year, we know that Hawaiʻi nonprofits still need to connect, talk story and learn together. We hope that you will take as much away from this conference as you would if we were all together.

This year’s conference theme is Shifting Paradigms.  We are inspired by the Native Hawaiian concept of makawalu, a way of seeing and understanding more than just what is before us. It is the vision and contemplation that allows us to see beyond now and prepare us for what is to come, to see the change that must take place before movement happens.  Join us to embrace makawalu as we begin to shift paradigms in the nonprofit sector to honor, uplift and restore indigenous ways of thinking, knowing and being in Hawaiʻi.


Whole Organization Pricing

Times are tough and you deserve a break.  We’re continuing to keep our prices low and are extending the whole organization rate which will give you discounted HANOCON access for up to 10 designated members of your staff, board members and volunteers.
