1) We also have had people join right after a contentious meeting. People said that it is obvious after such a meeting that we'll be able to work out whatever problems we face in the future.
2) While I agree with the "sell community" sentiment, I think the request was for ideas of how to get people to whom you can "sell community".
When you say that, what things are you thinking of that will get people to a supper or a meeting, or a community event?

They often were complete strangers to cohousing, and sometime we felt awkward that, when the meetings got contentious and/or emotional, we were exposing our visitors to our "less socially acceptable" side. Yet after the business meeting the visitors would very frequently comment on how moved they were by the frank expression of opinions and emotions and particularly by the gentleness andrespect that they were afforded.More than one found this to be a very positive and attractive aspect of thatforming community.
