At Sharingwood we have a welcoming team whose mission is to connect with new
people, give them our community guide, invite them to a private dinner, and
provide them with a gift basket and welcome. At this point they are given
the list of teams and asked to sign up to be on two. Pretty much everybody
seems to follow through and sign up to be on at least one team.

We had an orientation process for renters during our construction phase, but
have not continued it. Our landlords do their own orientation, and it is
clearly not working. I would appreciate any tips you might have. For

- Who does the orienting of renters? Do you have a certain person or
committee to do this?

- Is completing orientation a pre-requisite of signing a lease?

- Is there a participation agreement they sign?

We orient renters and require them to abide by community rules and expect 
them to participate in community chores.  So if an owner has left and then 
rents, we have some work done by the renters.
