The presenters from the People's Institute have a conflict and can't join us this month. But we anticipate that they'll be able to do their intro session for us at a future Meetup.

Additionally, we've added a presentation to the agenda: Steve Welzer attended the Northeast Regional Cohousing Summit in Amherst, MA in September, during which he got a chance to tour no fewer than eight communities (how lucky Massachusians are to have so many intentional community options!). He has pictures and commentary that he'll share with us.
