securities regulations
From: Louise Antony (

I'm a member of the Eno Commons Cohousing Group in Durham, NC - 

we've run itno a problem and would like to know if anyone has any
relevant info or experience.  Our project manager, Sheri Rosenthal,
has been advised by a lawyer that if we incorporate and then offer
memberships to the public, that we will be, in effect, trading in
securities, and would be subject to regulation.  What this could mean
over the long run is that if someone who joined later became disaffected,
he or she might have grounds for a very costly and ugly lawsuit.  

Any insight would be appreciated.
