Hello all —

For those of you using a digital platform to conduct meetings, how are you 
handling consensus decision making?  I’m not talking about discussion but the 
actual time you are moving towards consensus on a proposal.  

What challenges have you had or do you foresee?

What has gone well w/ your consensus process via a digital platform?

Do you have suggestions for communities starting to use a digital platform?

I did canvas the archives searching for keywords:  digital, consensus, zoom w/ 
various combinations. 

Thanks, all. :-)

PS mostly for old timers ... In my archive search, I also used “Go To Meeting” 
and ran into a raft of emails from Rob Sandelin.  I’m grateful to hear his 
voice and read his wise words as he continues to live in the Cohousing L 
archives.  Rob was one of the early contributors to the cohousing movement.  He 
produced a number of cohousing products that he made available for anyone 
wanting one.  He lived at Sharingwood Cohousing in Washington state.  He died 
way too young.
