Eris, Interesting about “the vine” at PCBC….will be interesting to hear what you find. But really want to support you on your blog about getting paid. Maybe if one is a techie for income, or you do most of your work for big corporations that paid very well, you can afford to discount for special groups. But those of us that have spent our entire careers in this realm of community and non-profits don’t have that luxury. All of my clients are cohousing groups, and they are all cash poor and thinking they are poorer than everyone else. The reason I am so good at doing what I do is that I have spent decades working you groups and projects just like yours. I’ve definitely hit the point where if its not worth it to you to paid my standard fees, then its not worth for me to do the work. Ultimately, if we are going to change the world, there has to be a sustainable business models to support people doing this work.

Thing One: There has been recent mention of other associations/organizations that have a bit of overlap with us in terms of development, condominium management, etc. Tomorrow I will be attending a one day event called The Vine, affiliated with the Pacific Coast Builders Conference put on by the California Building Industry Association. (Yes, I will report back what I learn!) How I came to this: as a facilitator I have a lot of colleagues in the meeting and association industries, and a good buddy of mine is the organizer/promoter/mastermind of this event. A year or two ago he invited me to give an Ignite presentation about cohousing at one of their events in Sacramento, which was very well received. Tomorrow I'll just be spectating. Info for anyone interested: http://www.pcbc.com/vine-program (Are any of the developer/architect types here involved with CBIA or its equivalent in other states?) Thing Two: There were also a few threads regarding the whole volunteer vs. paid issue...one that has been particularly up for me lately. Rather than rant & rave here I'll link to a recent blog post: http://erisweaver.info/blog/?p=507 ********************************************************** Eris Weaver, FrogSong cohousing in Cotati, CA Graphic Facilitator & Group Process Consultant eris [at] erisweaver.info . 707-338-8589 . http://www.erisweaver.info "On days when you have no ideas at all, the best thing you can do is start doodling."
