Its fun to see who's registering as the 2010 Conference registrations
started to roll in over the weekend.

So far, we have representatives from 5 Cohousing Communities, including 3 in
Colorado, 1 in Washington, and 1 in Massachusetts - some of you are
active contributors on Coho-L, so you know how you are.

I expect that the 2010 Conference (June 16-20, Boulder, CO) will set a new
attendance record. With 356 registrations, the 2009 conference (Seattle) had
35% higher registrations than in 2008 (Boston) - which itself set a new
record for us. Check out the video on the conference home page to hear from
some of the satisfied attendees and how attending the 2009 event helped

Friday's Registration Now Open announcement should have mentioned that:

(1) Registration prices for the Conference, Cohousing University, and Tours
all increase on March 31 and then again on May 31

(2) The general Call for Presenters will be sent out soon - and will be
posted to Coho-L, as well.

(3) Partial scholarships for first-time attenders are available, you can
learn about them in the registration section of the website.

The place to find all conference info is:
