2008 National Cohousing Conference Embraces Those Living in Community

The National Cohousing Conference has traditionally drawn a large crowd of folks who are searching for answers, advice, connections and community. This year the conference will also address cohousing’s most valuable resource: those already living in community. The 2008 conference experience is geared toward helping those of you who’ve been living in community – whether for months or years or decades – to enrich your lives and the life of your group as well as to connect with each other.

Sunday Self Directed Open Forums

If you can stay awhile, we have reserved space on Sunday afternoon to accommodate groups that may want to meet a little longer. These can be groups with a common interest found at the conference, regional gatherings, forming group gatherings, special topic interests – ideas can and will continue to develop through the conference, and a limited amount of space will be available for informal gatherings.
