AO's ONLY – Special meeting on Self-Governance (not public)

This meeting is for existing dues paying Members, the Active Organizing Group. – If you are new to our Meetup Group or have not attended a meeting before and you are serious about joining us to create cohousing in San Francisco, please come to one one of our frequently scheduled "Open Social Events" to introduce yourself. The Open Social Events are the point of entry for new people of all interest levels.

This meeting will be dedicated to one topic only, self-governance. To suggest other agenda items for future meetings, please add them to the Agenda document in the Organizing Committee folder on Google Docs (AO's only).

Please note that self-study on this subject matter is required by ALL Members prior to this meeting, even if you are unable to attend. A reading list will be posted shortly to Google Docs.

Some of us have attended trainings or have had experience with different self-governance systems that are successfully used by cohousing communities. Based on what we've learned so far, we are leaning toward adopting Dynamic Governance. All Members attending will have a chance to air their ideas on this or other systems of self-governance.

We intend to commit to a system of self-governance by the end of the meeting and begin implementing it going forward. To be sure, this will be a learning path.

Attendance policy:
We will start promptly at 1 pm. Allow extra travel time as needed.
If you RSVP positive on Meetup and something happens within 24 hours of the meeting and you can't make it:
1. Change your RSVP on Meetup
2. Call the cell of a Member who is attending to let us know

See you there!

    This was our first experience using the principles of dynamic governance. We struggled with the newness of it all but actually made two decisions.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
