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.
Main Conference Sessions
Note: On site registration and check in will be in the LaCava building.

We have expanded plans for our Saturday night to include a dance band this year! Join us in Bentley’s Executive Dining Room for an evening of fabulous food, an extensive silent auction, and some live auction excitement! Then it’s time to push back the table and dance to the sounds of Swing Café, Eric Kilburn’s live swing band! (Eric hails from New View Cohousing).
We’re excited to welcome John Abrams, founding member and resident of Island Cohousing in Martha’s Vineyard, as our keynote speaker.

He chairs two nonprofits – the Island Housing Trust and the Island Affordable Housing Fund – and speaks often on affordability issues, socially responsible business and ecological building issues. John’s book The Company We Keep explores “the role of business in preserving and restoring local culture, social equity and ecological balance.” To learn more about John’s company, visit the South Mountain Company website.
