Big Changes for the 2017 NPD Conference & Luncheon 

The Association of Fundraising Professionals – Aloha Chapter is hard at work creating a dynamic day of learning and connecting that will appeal broadly to fundraisers at all levels, leadership, and philanthropists across all sectors. We are proud to announce two positive changes to the schedule.

1)    A longer morning networking period with coffee and pastries.

2)    A later start time to the educational sessions to accommodate our neighbor island attendees.

Additionally, the first breakout session of the day will be a single “mega-session” for all attendees presented by Gail Perry! Gail will offer learning opportunities never before presented and specifically tailored to our audience. Get ready for a relevant, substantial and inspiring morning!
