Forums are live at the RHSV website

Part of our book collection at the RHSV
Following the demise of the networking website "My Connected Community" (mc2) last week, we are putting some of the functions on our own website. 

If you visit the RHSV website now you will see the link "Forums" at the top of the front page.  If you click on that link you will be able to register for the Forums.  Once registered for the Forums, you will be able to post messages, or reply to messages, in the Forums. 

It will also give you the ability to post events to our Calendar of Events.  Once you are at the Forums page you will see a link just above the Forums to the RHSV Events calendar.  There is still some tweaking to do with this, but it will be coming to the front page of our website. The Calendar of Events is available to our affiliated societies and other stake-holders in our sector. 

You will also be asked to indicate whether you would like to receive emails from the RHSV - these emails are likely to include information about give-aways, grants, coming events and so on.  As the Calendar of Events won't send a message each time a new event is posted in the same way as the mc2, did we may send a digest of the events for the coming week as a reminder.

When you are registering for the Forums, which are free for anyone to join, you will be taken to our Membership Subscription page.  At the top of that page there is an option to subscribe to the Forums for free, so choose that button.
