About AD UP Hawaii

AD UP Hawaii is a team based marketing campaign development competition with full day workshops for non profits. Marketing professionals form “mini agency teams” as they compete for the best marketing campaign for one of six non-profit organizations.

This year, we are adding a special opportunity for non-profits to receive a comprehensive assessment of their organization from Strategists, Operations Experts, HR professionals, Accountants and Finance Professionals. For more information and to apply, see below.
