Re Peg Blum's questions on how to organize bulletin boards and other forms of communication: At Lake Claire in Atlanta, after nearly one year of living together, we have experimented and come up with this: a) Bulletin Boards are divided into 3 topics: Urgent Notices of meetings, etc; Official Coho Business (meal sign-ups, memos, informational items); and Community News and Announcements. We have a bulletin board guru who monitors the stuff, taking down items after 2 weeks or after event has passed. People sign and date notices. Removed items are placed in an archival box for later retrieval; official coho stuff we want to keep goes in a notebook. Yes, the boards fill up fast. b) Bulletin Board locations: Urgent Notices is right above mailboxes so people will see it; other two are on wall facing the entry door. Still, some people don't read the bulletin boards. We often put notices on the entry door glass as well. c) Unit cubbies: In addition to the locked U.S. mailboxes, we have cubbies in which we distribute minutes, notices, memos, and notes among ourselves. This is invaluable. d) We've tried other ways to communicate, too, outside of business meetings -- grafitti boards posted on the walls for people to comment on special issues for a specified time period; improvement plans and designs posted for comments. This saves some meeting time. Jennifer McCoy Lake Claire Cohousing, Atlanta
