It was posted by Fred, the Cohousing-L list manager <fholson [at] cohousing.org> after saving the "attached" document at: http://l.cohousing.org/MembershipAgreement2014-06-04.pdf -------------------- FORWARDED MESSAGE FOLLOWS -------------------- Greetings Our community after our first five years of experience recently revised and agreed to a new Membership Agreement which addresses who is a Member and their rights and responsibilities. We based it on input from many of you, our experience to date, and our overall values. Not easy task. I have attached it for your use. Basically the following folks have the same functional rights and responsibilities: anyone who is a unit owner, a spouse or domestic partner of the unit owner who is in residence and any tenant whose intent is to be in the community more than 90 days. We have found that tenants of less than 90 days are not hear to participate meaningfully in the community. As you can see, the issue of other adults living in one's home was a bit more challenging. However at the end of the day the unit owner is ultimately held accountable for whatever our community attributes to units. Our Bylaws also talk about the rights and responsibilities of Unit Owners. It defers to this Membership Agreement as to rights of Members which includes tenants. Our Unit Owners unlike tenants attend the annual meeting, participate in what ostensibly is a ratifying vote on annual budget, election of Steering Team and changes to the ByLaws. I would say that unit owners in residence in general participate more in fulfilling the responsibilities of the community than even than some of the long term tenants but some of the long term tenants do more than a few of the unit owners in residence. Hope this is of value.
