I'm not sure how useful this is, since we have not yet moved in -- that's just three or four months away now! -- but Mosaic Commons has the following standing teams: * Coord (overall planning team) * Community Support (including conflict resolution) * Facilitation (meeting planning and facilitation) * Finance * Tech/Website (mailing lists, Web site, other tech support) These have been useful during the design phase and may or may not become standing teams: * Basements (for policy on community-owned basements) * Furnishings (now known as "Resources", for community-owned items) * Garden * Green (environmentally-focused design, grants) * Mechanicals (for design/purchase of common mechanical systems) * Professionals (our liaisons with architects, real-estate attorney, et al.) These have been useful as we build the community and may or may not become standing teams: * Affordability * Diversity (trying to make our community more diverse, and educating members on interacting with others who have different values) * Childcare (parents and provider liaison, for childcare at meetings) * Marketing (gets people to intro meetings) * Membership (follows them from intro meetings to equity membership) * PR (explains the community to the media, town boards, media) Various ad-hoc teams over the years have included: * Land/Site (land search/acquisition) * Design and its subteams -- Carports, Electrical, Kids' Room, Kitchen, Landscape, Specs, Private Units, Workshop * CommStyle (communications styles) And we share these teams right now with Camelot Cohousing, as we design/ plan for Sawyer Hill EcoVillage: * SH Internet * SH Marketing (a very active team, as we still have units to sell!) * SH Office * SH PR * SH Site Work If I've divided them up or explained them badly, someone else from Mosaic should jump in and correct me. :) Ellen Seebacher Mosaic Commons / Sawyer Hill EcoVillage, Berlin, MA (still with available units, both market-rate and affordable!) http://www.mosaic-commons.org http://sawyerhill.org
