On a related topic, I would also like to point out the obvious that one you attract people with your flyers, you need to have a consistent system in place for follow-up. Every group will develop its own methods, but the easiest system is to use e-mail. Our group collects information from people (including e-mail address) when they first attend an informational presentation. I think you will be surprised how many people nowadays have e-mail. Probably 40-50% of our attendees have e-mail addresses. Not to stereotype, but even older people use e-mail to keep in touch with grandkids, etc. Simply set up a mailing list, and once a month (or whatever), send out a message announcing dates, times, and places for upcoming brunches, work meetings (for new people to observe), or other social events. It takes about 5 minutes a month to do this type of "mailing", and is essentially free. Paul Conahan Ann Arbor Cohousing -- http://www-personal.umich.edu/~pconahan/
