Boston is not the only place to learn about Sociocracy this June.  The 2012 
National Cohousing Conference is offering two workshops in Sociocracy with John 
Schinnerer called Governance By Design - Organizing ourselves to get things 

John is offering this as a Pre-conference full day workshop on Thursday June 
14th, 8 am to 5 pm.  He is also offering a two hour session on Saturday morning 
during the main conference.
Registration and full conference schedule at:

Here's what John says about his workshop: Do you want to get things done and 
have more fun?

Experience Sociocracy - a whole systems design for self?-governance. Learn to:
- Organize and govern yourselves effectively and efficiently
- Implement and maintain equivalence and transparency
- Optimize group intelligence and wisdom while retaining individual 
perspectives and contributions

Explore real-world, cohousing-relevant examples of governance by design. Both 
pre-conference and breakout workshops will be highly experiential, offering 
participants an opportunity to engage directly with issues of cohousing 
governance structure, process, issues, and solutions in real life contexts.

Facilitated by John Schinnerer, principal of Governance By Design and 
Eco-Living Whole Systems Design and member of The Sociocracy Consulting Group.  
John is a whole systems design consultant, teacher, and facilitator focusing on 
cultural and ecological design. Since 1996, he has studied, worked, taught and 
published in the realms of human relatings, governance and decision making 
systems, appropriate technology and ecological design. His easygoing style and 
insightful approach support an optimal learning experience. The methods, tools 
and techniques that John offers invite maximum clarity, honesty, and integrity 
while enhancing efficiency and effectiveness; in other words, to get things 
done and have more fun!

This is just one of the many fabulous offerings at this year's conference.  
Don't miss it.
