I've been lurking - Hi. I'm a potential member of what was "ChiCoCo" now "Northern Vermont CoHousing" and my husband and I will start our own community in MA if we don't end up joining them. RE: Associate members etc - It's a different beast in many ways but my husband's family have long had a summer camp on Lake Champlain on "Cedar Beach". The land is owned by the "Cedar Beach Association" so in that respect it is sort of like a condo association I guess. But the people have mostly known each other for years so in that respect it is a *little* more like co- housing (just a little!) but they have "social memberships". Social members can do things like use the tennis courts and dock, and can certainly attend meetings but I don't think they get a vote so there must be ways to do things like this. (I'll forward this to my husband and he can clarify if he wishes). I look forward to reading of this. On a related subject - Do any of your groups have some way that someone can have a "seasonal" membership?? I have a good friend who lives in San Fransico who would seriously consider living in a co-housing group with us part of the year if that were an option. He can afford it, but I wonder how this might work? Mary Ellen (aka - mew) MaryEllen Wessels mew [at] mewsic.com http://www.mewsic.com 131 DW Hwy PMB #609 Nashua, NH 03060
