There are many issues affecting nonprofits in the state, such as funding, impending regulation, budget cuts, leadership changes, escalating premiums for workers’ compensation and health insurance, training and technology needs, and more, organizers said.

This town-hall meeting is an opportunity for leaders of Kaua‘i nonprofit groups to come together, address these issues, and generate solutions.

Participants are also encouraged to attend the national Nonprofit Congress. This national gathering will be held in October in Washington, D.C., where Hawai‘i’s representatives will join with other state leaders to create a public-policy platform for the sector.
