Friends, please make sure you have the dates for the next Cohousing national conference in your calendar, and then consider submitting a proposal for session presenter (see below for details)! See you in Durham! Laura Fitch, AIA, LEED BD+C Kraus Fitch Architects, Inc. <mailto:lfitch [at] krausfitch.com> lfitch [at] krausfitch.com <http://www.krausfitch.com/> www.krausfitch.com Executive Team - Cohousing Association of the US <http://www.cohousing.org/> www.cohousing.org 2015 National Cohousing Conference: The Next Generation May 29-31, 2015 in Durham, NC Coho/US welcomes proposals to lead sessions at the national conference. As a community-design process and as a way of living, cohousing encourages the development of valuable skills that support community, foster sustainable approaches, enhance lifestyles, and encourage civic engagement. This conference will seek to advance those skills both within our communities and outside our cohousing circles to grow our movement. Cohousing residents, professionals, and others involved with cohousing and aligned movements are invited to present sessions. Submit proposals to lead conference sessions here <http://www.cohousing.org/2015/submit> . Deadline for submission is October 1, 2014. Conference sessions will be of three types: 1. Pre-conference Intensives (1/2 day or full day). Potential sessions might include project management training, building our research network, developing facilitation skills, urban cohousing case study, and creating senior cohousing. 2. Core Curriculum (90 minute) sessions will focus on creating and enhancing cohousing communities. The intent is to cover the essentials; we encourage new ideas and approaches. Sessions might include building and bolstering community; marketing & membership; conflict resolution; getting the work done within built communities; design process; green building; group process; meal systems; and more.>/li> 3. The Next Generation (90 minute) sessions will highlight our theme. Potential sessions might focus on evolving our definition of cohousing; learning from our children of cohousing, and what we can offer them; re-energizing existing communities; emerging trends in cohousing such as urban affordability, rural "agritopia," community approaches to aging in place, retrofit and non-traditional approaches; and fostering cohousing-aligned alternative communities. Visit www.cohousing.org/2015conference for our theme outline. Panel Sessions - some sessions may lend well to a panel structure. If you are willing to participate as a panel presenter, rather than leading a session, please let us know by emailing conference [at] cohousing.org with your ideas. Special Gatherings In addition to conference sessions, there will be opportunities for special gatherings to network and share experiences. If you would like to host or help organize a special gathering, either one suggested below or a new group, email conference [at] cohousing.org with your ideas. We are currently considering gatherings for * Children of cohousing * Rural cohousing communities * Cohousing research network * Partnership for Affordable Cohousing * Communities celebrating 20+ years Questions? Ideas? Visit www.cohousing.org/2015conference or email conference [at] cohousing.org
