Hi Eric --

At the cohousing conference in Oakland this past June, Janelle Orsi and Cynthia 
Hawley gave a fabulous presentation on the law and cohousing, non profits, 
cooperatives, etc.  I'm sure if you wrote them they would make their extensive 
89 page handout available to you.

Their presentation was one of the best I've ever attended on any cohousing 
related topic.
