Becky, hello
 You didn't say how long you all have been living together.  It may be that 
people are just done in by the final push and moving in.  We have been living 
together for three plus years and have made several adjustments to meetings 
in general. We now have quarterly "community living meetings."  These may be 
shaped as sharing circles or use other forms of communicating. That's up to 
the two people who organize them.  

There are a few conclusions I'd offer.

 * Don't try to have them too often
 * Have the subject one that the community feels is important (such as 
children's issues as you mentioned).  We discuss choice in common during our 
two hour bimonthly meetings?
  * Have people volunteer to facilitate and/or ask one of your committees to 
come up with people/format
  * Hold them to be important.

all best, Janet Carter
