|Dear Dish Subscribers,|
I can't believe February is here and RFMA 2012 is right around the corner.
It is what we work towards all year long and we are looking forward to sharing with you all the new offerings at this year's event. There will be hundreds of new faces along with those who have been with RFMA since the beginning. It will be a unique opportunity that only comes once a year when you will be surrounded by like-minded people, eager to learn and share best practices. I hope you will relish the experience.
You will be receiving several different emails over the next few weeks, providing you with vital information regarding your registration badge and check-in, things to know before you come, exciting news about our new conference app, and more. I apologize in advance for filling up your inbox, but please trust that we wouldn't be sending them if we didn't believe it was information you needed to enhance your conference value and experience.
If for some reason you are unable to join us this year in Las Vegas, there will be a conference wrap up in the April/May issue of Facilitator magazine, and session handouts are available on the conference website. We hope you can join us next year.
Thank you for allowing RFMA to serve you.

The Ins and Outs of InSite: NETWORKS
Last month The Ins and Outs of InSite gave you some tips about how to use Forums. Here are some more InSite tips to help you navigate and utilize InSite! This month we would like to spotlight networks and job postings.
How can I link my other social networking accounts with my InSite account?
-We know that many people and companies have several social networking accounts. Keeping up with LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, etc. can be a lot of work and confusing. To link your other social networking accounts to your InSite profile is very simple.
After logging into InSite, go to Networks on the left hand side of the webpage. After clicking Networks, you can simply pick which Network you would like your profile to link to (i.e. linkedin, facebook, twitter) and then copy the URL address for your social network page. After adding this Network to your InSite profile you and your connections will see these Networks in your My Bio page and can click on them as well to connect with you on these other social media sites. Start networking and connecting today!!
How can I post a job on RFMA's website?
-After logging into the RFMA website, choose the Member Resources tab. From there you can access the Care Center, post a job, or look for jobs posted by other RFMA members. You can either add search criteria or search all jobs and provide no search restrictions for job postings. Your job posting will also be linked to your InSite profile.
If you have questions about InSite, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
