RE: Using group member professionally. A delicate question, friends! We have members who brought a great deal of knowledge and contributed a great, great deal of very valuable help. We hired an outside architect, after interviewing, i believe, five Architects. Our architect became very involved w the group and we w him and his life, several of us visiting his [out of Town] home..... at this point, feelings on the part of perhaps half the group toward the architect are not good. He was fine , absolutely wonderful and a sweetie for part of the project, the beginning. As his own agenda reared its head, things became difficult. If your priority, rob, is being a happy member of the group, it's likely not to be worth the risk.... It depends on your personality and style; if you've ever had a falling out with a client, you may want to avoid that possibilty 'at home'. I do know that groups have used internal members professionally, and maybe others will chime in. When we met w Northeast Co-Ho members in Massachusetts, perhaps 2 years ago, there were folks who'd had the experience. Wishing you well, whichever way you go, Best, Ruth Hirsch, Cantines Island, Saugerties, NY
