Just when you thought it was safe to come out...The Cohousing Network (Mid-Atlantic Chapter) in conjunction with Heartbeat Cities is planning an East Coast conference for the weekend of November 20-22, 1998. Even if you live west of the Mississippi please come! Heartbeat Cities is one of the sponsors of this conference. The firm is a for profit company working with cohousing communities on the east coast. The company specializes in site development, architectural design, and construction managment (project management.) They are currently initiating two cohousing communities in the Baltimore, MD area. For more information please visit their website at: www.heartbeatcities.com. Following in the footsteps of the highly successful 1996 conference in Amherst, Massachusetts, the conference is targeted to people currently involved in creating or developing a cohousing community and for those living in built communities. There will also be special workshops for those interested in starting a cohousing community or learning more about the cohousing phenomenon. Several members of the Board of Trustees of The Cohousing Network have already indicated their availability to attend and present workshops at the conference. The site we have located is a gorgeous Quaker school in Newtown just outside Philadelphia, PA. The conference fee of $150.00 includes the conference workshops, events and meals. The surrounding area is abundant with lodging options from camping to hostels ($8.00 per nite) to hotel accommodations ($79.00 per nite double beds.) Something is available for everyone's budget. The conference is a fund-raiser for TCN Mid-Atlantic. We need 150 people to make this conference work. Before we get too much further into this project we're doing a little market research. Can you help us by answering the following questions? Would you attend a 2 day conference in the Philadelphia, PA area the weekend of Nov. 20-22? Friday afternoon through Sunday noon. (This is the weekend before Thanksgiving.) Can you pay $150 for the conference including meals? Will you volunteer for pre-conference or on-site conference tasks? (For instance, a pre-conference task would be serving on the Program committee -- soliciting and finalizing workshops; an-on site task would be manning the registration table.) If you are in a cohousing group will you serve as a contact between your group and the conference? (distribute flyers to community; encourage your future neighbors to attend; collect registrations if necessary.) Are you willing to distribute flyers outside your immediate community? To whom and where? Would you be willing to facilitate, lead or co-lead a workshop? On what topic(s)? Other considerations/thoughts? Please let me know as soon as possible if you can attend. We are working under very tight deadlines. With your help we can make this happen! Thanks! -- _______________________ Best -- Ann Zabaldo Liberty Village Cohousing (:~ annz [at] libertyvillage.com
