    I've been working on new sets of educational materials, mostly posters and brochure-style stuff, for ShowBunnySite and the Rabbit Industry Council.

    What kind of educational materials would do you the most good, and what format would help most?

    When should this material be available to you--is it something that you'd want to see on the front page of a site, a package that you could get when starting, or something you could request from a list of educational items?

    Please email me privately; I don't often get over here. :D

    Thanks!

    Hi, Pam:

    Could you explain what the Rabbit Industry Council is? What
    is the mission? Who are the directors? Is there a website?
    When was it formed?

    I'm sure some of us would like to know more about the accomplishments
    and agenda of this organization.

    Thanks!

    Here is the original mission statement from the nonprofit corporation constitution...it's no longer a corporation, but the group stands for the same things still. Members are welcome--figure out what YOU can do and let us know. :)

    Due to the limited number of members, we've concentrated pretty much on education about RVHD and supplying informational materials on various topics.

    Thanks for asking!

    ps..the RIC was conceived in 1996, started in 2000 and the mission statement was last revised in 2001. I am the sole director at this time; the website is not available until I find a good webmaster for it. :).
