Pioneer Valley Cohousing will be arriving shortly at its one year anniversary of adopting (and adapting) sociocracy/dynamic governance. Overdue for me to write up some of our experience. But in the meantime... I will be co-teaching a Foundations of Sociocracy class by telephone/online Wednesdays, 12:30-2:30 pm EST, beginning January 29 . Wednesday afternoon Foundations<http://sociocracyconsulting.com/ai1ec_event/foundations-of-sociocracy-online-2/?instance_id=456> There are discounts when more than one person from an organization signs up and as of this writing there were still several early bird discounts available. Other colleagues of mine from The Sociocracy Consulting Group (TSCG) will be offering a similar class on Tuesdays, 7:00-9:00 pm EST, beginning February 4 . Tuesday eve Foundations<http://sociocracyconsulting.com/ai1ec_event/foundations-of-sociocracy-online/?instance_id=454> If you would like to learn about sociocracy yourself, or if you would like to introduce a friend or colleague to sociocracy, these classes are a good way -- from the comfort of your own home or office. In addition, for people who have had a Foundations of Sociocracy class or equivalent and would like to learn more about facilitation, TSCG is offering a Dynamic Governance Facilitation<http://sociocracyconsulting.com/ai1ec_event/dynamic-governance-facilitation-/> class on Tuesdays, 1:00-3:00 pm Eastern Standard Time, beginning January 28 .
