We haven't moved into our community yet (first house expected to be available soon tho), but I would have thought that 25-50% attendance at regular ongoing meetings is probably pretty good. Most organisations have committees that represent a tiny fraction of members so why should cohousing be totally different. We have a quorum requirement and circulate minutes promptly. We also have a safeguard that anyone not present at a particular meeting can revisit any issue that a decision has been made on at the NEXT meeting only. We also sometimes decide that a matter needs wider consultation (ie with people not present) and do something about that. There are many decisions that are made in my absence, and I'm happy about that, and I generally believe that if I don't turn up I'm accepting the 'authority' of those present to decide.
