Register today (or use your CohoUS Partner access) for Saturday's Stepping
Into Cohousing online conference.

Below are a few of the sessions.  We hope you will join us for these
sessions, networking and a great keynote with Diana Lind, author of Brave
New Home: Our Future in Smarter, Simpler, Happier Housing.

Designing for Affordability and Diversity

Grace Kim

Many cohousing groups start off with a strong desire to include diversity
and affordability…but very few actually achieve these ideals by the time
they move in. This session will address definitions of affordability and
diversity; discuss intentions around inclusion; the pervasiveness of
systemic racism and how it affects life in community; and the training and
discussions required to prepare residents for success.

Top Tips on Converting Interested People to Members

Shelly Parks

Shelly will share her top tips including what to say on a first call, how
to talk about your forming or developing community in a compelling way,
what kind of effective follow up is needed after an event, how to have a
“closing” conversation, and more.

Project Delivery Methods – You have choices

Molly Jones and Bryan Bowen

This session will describe the various structures within which communities,
architects and contractors can work together, explore the pros and cons of
each and assist you in choosing the one that is best for your community.

Who Does What? Roles and Circles to Spread the Load

Ted Rau, Sociocracy for All

In many forming groups, it’s the founder(s) or a small core group that
makes many decisions and does most of the work – often burning out people.
But it doesn’t have to be that way! Roles and clearly empowered circles are
a way to provide clarity and to spread authority so all voices can be heard.
