In response to question about paying professioals, e.g., attorneys,
accountants, who are members of your cohousing community. LaQuerencia /
Fresno Cohousing doesn't employ its members for professional expertise.  I
am an attorney. Sometimes the group or the officers might seek my "take" on
something, including a legal issue affecting our community (organized under
CA law as a condominium). I may give my off the cuff opinion but then
advise expert advice might be needed by an attorney who is not a community
member and who practices in that area of law..Agree with Sharon V about
problems in hiring - and firing - such advisors, if he/she is a member of
the community.
