Greetings Co-housers, I'm writing from Pioneer Vally Co-housing about administration issues. WE are currently debating new ways of handling responsibilities. For example, the community is running now with a monthly general meeting and many different committees to deal with various aspects of community life (kitchen, common house maintenance, buildings and grounds, children, etc.) there are 19 active committees. Two suggestions have arisen for possible changes in this structure. The first arises from a structure someone in our community saw in Denmark, which was that the community was divided into small work teams that divided up the larger responsibilites of the community. We are considering a move to this model. The second change is the adoption of a steering committee to oversee the overall functioning of the community. The committee would have a coordinating and reporting function only and would have no decision making power. These changes are in response to a perception within the community that some oversight might serve us well and to a general overload of committee activity. If any one has any thoughts or comments on this type of structure or has made similar changes we would be glad to hear about your experiences. Thanks Stephan Rogers BuckRog [at] aol.com Amherst MA
