The 6 hour Online Affordable Cohousing conference is coming up Sat Feb 22 11am-5pm CST, ( 9-3 PST, 10-4 MST, noon-6 EST) https://www.cohousing.org/2020-online-affordable/ Early Bird registration: $40 thru 2/14/20 Regular Registration: $55 There are two (free I think) Zoom webchats leading up to the conference Web chat Format notes at end of this message Upcoming WebChats: (from https://www.cohousing.org/webchats/ ) Wednesday, Feb 12, 5pm PST, 6pm MST, 7pm CST, 8pm EST Betsy Morris Affordability: Building Blocks What are the basic building blocks of affordability in cohousing? What strategies have different communities employed to reduce costs and bring in outside funding as they develop? What kinds of partnerships make it possible to economically diversify and extend the range of the movement? How can we overcome the market realities and stereotypes, slay the myths of shortcuts and engage proven paths to true affordability? As we prepare for the Affordable Conference on Affordable Cohousing on February 22, join Cohousing Coach Betsy Morris, in a re-release and group discussion of her Cohousing Journal / Communities Magazine article outlining the many innovative approaches that pioneering communities adopted in the first decade of the movement. Which ones are relevant today? Can these unique models be replicated in new projects? Betsy is a Cohousing California regional organizer and Global EcoVillage Network (GEN) Ambassador, living in community in Berkeley, California. She is part of the Cohousing Research Network and serves on the area’s Gray Panthers board, working to learn from Tiny Home Villages and landless peoples as we share cohousing principles. Wednesday, Feb 19, 5pm PST, 6pm MST, 7pm CST, 8pm EST Katie McCamant Affordability: Lessons Learned As the person who has worked more cohousing project budgets (and seen them thru to completion) than perhaps anyone else in the US, Katie will review what makes it so hard to keep projects affordable. Almost every community starts out wanting to keep costs low and to be able to offer more affordable options. Katie will help us understand why they aren’t more successful in that aim. Katie is also very familiar with the affordable housing world of subsidies and the opportunities and limitations of that world. Katie’s goal, in all of her work, is to help cohousing groups increase their likelihood of success by building on the knowledge gained from the cohousing development over the last 30 years, while adapting to the needs of future communities. Web chat Format: The Cohousing Association of the US is teaming up with our cohousing professionals to bring people together to talk about cohousing. Each WebChat is a zoom call open to all. The presenter shares 15-30 minutes on a named topic and then answers questions from participants about the topic or other topics within the presenter’s expertise. Please join us for the next WebChat. Videos of most WebChats will be available after the event. Click here to view past webchats. All WebChats will be at the same time: 5pm Pacific, 6pm Mountain, 7pm Central, 8pm East All will use the zoom room at https://zoom.us/j/202941610 If you are not in North America: http://www.thetimezoneconverter.com/ Fred's note: The conf. organizers have said the conference "is not an ideal event for large group participation". However, I suspect a reasonably good group event could be done with 4 computers set up in 4 accoustically seperate spaces so that 4 simultaneous breakout sessions could be attended. Fewer if not all four breakouts are covered. I'm not sure what the bandwidth requirement would be - maybe try having 4 computers on one of the webchats to check it out. I do not know if anyone is doing this. Fred -- Fred H. Olson Minneapolis,MN 55411 USA (near north Mpls) Email: fholson at cohousing.org 612-588-9532 My Link Pg: http://fholson.cohousing.org
