Greeting, we are working on writing several policies for Linden Cohousing,
formerly CohoMadison. We are using addendums to write operational
suggestions for the committee that will be in charge of implementing the
policy or the addendum clarifies specific ideas in the policy that are

"An addendum is something added to a previously existing written document –
usually a contract
Typically, it is either a more detailed explanation of something already
noted in a contract or a proposed change to the contract. The word
addendum, or the plural addenda, is derived from the Latin word *addere*,
which means “must be added.”

I would like some feedback on using addendums.  Here are my questions.  Do
you think addendums are helpful when clarifying cohousing policies before
they are approved? After the policy is approved, does your governance
bylaws explain how policies are amended compared to addendums?  Or, does
the committee, who has the responsibility of implementing the policy,  have
free rain to alter the addendum?

Thanks, Chris Terbrueggen
