Raines Cohen <raines-coho-L [at] raines.com> is the author of the message below ( 6/14) but due to a problem it was posted by Fred the Cohousing-L list manager: fholson [at] cohousing.org NOTE: According to the message: Conference "Rates go up $50 this weekend" To get off Cohousing-L, send email with UNSUBSCRIBE COHOUSING-L in the msg body to: listproc [at] cohousing.org Questions? email Fred - addr above -------------------- FORWARDED MESSAGE FOLLOWS -------------------- The Cohousing Network (TCN), the umbrella nonprofit organization supporting Cohousing in North America, organizes a continental conference every two years. It's a great place to go to meet the people behind the 55 Cohousing communities already built and the twenty-some under construction or in development and trade notes about what works, how to overcome obstacles, and how to keep communities strong AFTER they're built. And the next one is coming up next month, in a great place - the San Francisco Bay Area! The conference, held July 20-22 at UC Berkeley's College of Environmental Design, includes extensive breakout sessions including ones on affordability, organic/retrofit cohousing, inter-community collaboration, different development options, and working with professionals. General sessions will provide a look back at ten years of living in Cohousing in North America, and Thirty years overall, as well as a look forward to the next ten years. Extra features include The Cohousing Store, an auction, banquet at the Berkeley Marina Radisson hotel, and lots of networking opportunities. There's also still space available (conference attendees get first dibs) at pre-conference workshops on "Getting It Built" (led by Kathryn McCamant of The Cohousing Company) and consensus (led by Laird Schaub of the Fellowship for Intentional Community). You can find everything about the conference, from breakout sessions to logistics to registration forms, at TCN's conference website: http://www.cohousing.org/conf/ca2001/ The full conference costs just $195 for TCN members or members of groups that are part of TCN; $245 otherwise. Rates go up $50 this weekend, so register now. A limited number of scholarships are available for volunteers and those in need; see the site for info on how to apply. If you can't make the whole conference and you're in the area, at least come to the public lecture Friday evening, July 20, at the International House, where Eric Utne, founder of the Utne Reader, will speak on community. It's just a $10 suggested donation. I can't urge you strongly enough to attend if you at all can... in every place the conference has been held before, people looking to make new communities happen have found that it really helped them reach the critical mass of enough people sufficiently educated about Cohousing to share the vision and translate it into action. I don't have any personal financial benefit by your attending... I just look forward to seeing you there! So if you're serious about making Cohousing happen in the East Bay or wherever you are, now is the time to get involved.
