We're not living in community yet at Highline Crossing, so all of our 
interaction is meetings of one sort or another.  We have one member
who withdrew from participation for two months to study for the bar exam.
We didn't have a problem with it.  We've another member who withdrew
for a year or so, and I just met for the first time at a meeting 
yesterday.   I guess he's back in the fold as an active member, 
but I'm not sure. We have other members who live out of state, so 
they of course do not participate actively, but I presume they pay their

I'm not sure what we'll do about back dues, quite a few of us are behind,
because our dues chairperson left the group.  We'll probably assess the
back dues (it's only $25/quarter), so that we can cover all our mailings
and such - postage costs add up when the group's not living together 
yet.  Trying to keep everyone informed when not everyone can get to every 
meeting (including committees) entails alot of mailings.

Mostly we're working on Trust, I guess.
