Hi Clarence--
I started a group in the Hartford area about a year and a half site yet but that is another issue.
I would recommend that a cohousing group in Columbus Ohio is NEWS.  Try to find out who would be a reporter in your largest paper and start contacting that person, sending information about cohousing, etc. and try to get that person to do a story about your group.
You would be the first cohousing group in Ohio right?  Play that up!  A smart reporter will realize that is a good story.  Mention the recent Boston Globe article (on cohousing in New England..well I know you're not New England but not too far away).
Probably all of the members I have today were brought into my group by a large article in our main paper, the Hartford Courant.
Good luck,
Shelly DeMeo

Subject: [C-L]_Info for a new group?

Hi All! My name is Clarence Dale, and I a member of a fledgling Cohousing
group in Columbus, Ohio. We have only had one meeting, consisting of three
members. Our next meeting is scheduled for the end of April with an
additional six interested familles. Our agenda thus far is socializing for an
hour or so, and after that, a speaker on the subject of "Developing a Group
Process." Any ideas in this area? What pitfalls can and should we avoid? Any
help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. I'm looking forward to
exchanging ideas with all of you!
