This is somewhat off topic but it’s related to something Steve broached in his 
email:  where do we get the prospects who end up on our Notification List?

At Takoma Village, we publicize our tours and Open Houses via other cohousing 
communities that are members of Mid Atlantic Cohousing most notably Eastern 
Village in Silver Spring, MD.  This sharing of prospect lists is an example of 
how regional cohousing groups can support each other not just when they are 
forming but long after they are settled in their respective homes.  Lesson 
learned:  you never quit doing marketing and outreach. At some point you will 
have a resale.  

We also have a Face Book page and we can post to the Mid Atlantic Cohousing 
website.  

We draw individuals from a plethora of entry points who are added to our 
database when they request it.  Opt in only.  :-)
