I guess I should mention, we have vacant homes, no renters and owners living here w/o doing their fair share.

We do have a mentor process- people are matched 1:1 with a helper who guides them and reminds them of the way things happen here.

At Sharingwood we have a welcoming team whose mission is to connect with new people, give them our community guide, invite them to a private dinner, and provide them with a gift basket and welcome. At this point they are given the list of teams and asked to sign up to be on two. Pretty much everybody
seems to follow through and sign up to be on at least one team.

We had an orientation process for renters during our construction phase, but have not continued it. Our landlords do their own orientation, and it is
clearly not working. I would appreciate any tips you might have. For
example:

- Who does the orienting of renters? Do you have a certain person or
committee to do this?

- Is completing orientation a pre-requisite of signing a lease?

- Is there a participation agreement they sign?

We orient renters and require them to abide by community rules and expect them to participate in community chores. So if an owner has left and then
rents, we have some work done by the renters.
