Kevin has set up a website: www.bloomingtoncohousing.org which has a link to a site, www.meetup.com where we have a group site where we each can sign up and put in a member profile and where we can add lots of things such as meeting announcements, discussions, etc.
We discussed setting up a membership structure and paying dues. Janet said that at some point people would have to start putting in a considerable amout of money. Kevin said he thought that this should be set up in stages, and most others agreed. Discussion will be continued.
We discussed exploring shared values and each of us writing a vision statement. A handout was supplied as a guide in writing a vision statement.
Sharin stated that she would like to get to know other people more personally. She will lead a "getting to know you" exercise at the next meeting.
Janet talked about holding a public informational meeting in March to attract more members. She will start working on this.
We discussed the best meeting dates and times. It was decided that most people can meet on Thursday evening.
