Click here to join the RHINO network
ALL FREE.  There's no obligation except participation
is a network Getting in the loop is different than going in circles!  Membership is FREE

Why a network? 
  • None of us has all the knowledge in the universe.  By sharing what we know we can be more efficient, effective and control of our local work.
  • Networking provides 2 way communication, not top down direction. RHINO is looking for Members...not followers.
  • Networking is affordable.  Just think how much money you spend in meetings, classes, writing and reading policies, and reports...Networks just work.
RHINO is careful to protect your privacy and sanity...
1.  If you give your email address to a RHINO partner in the course of a service exchange, the partner organization may offer you an opportunity to join a RHINO network or become a newsletter subscriber.
2.  RHINO will not buy email lists or harvest email addresses from others. 
3.  RHINO will periodically offer opt outs to network members and newsletter subscribers who have lost interest, changed job, retired. 
4.  RHINO will honor and comply with opt out requests at any time.
5.  RHINO won't sell, share or expose your email address without your permission.
6.  RHINO networks are moderated to make sure that postings are on topic for the group. Off topic posters are counseled.
7.  If RHINO screws up (everybody does now and then) let us know and we'll fix it.
8.  If you have suggestions for additional privacy protections...let us know!
