The 2003 Cohousing Conference had our most diverse and enticing selection of weekend workshop sessions to date. With more than 50 offerings, we had something for everyone, including forming communities, established communities, intentional communities, as well as folks with a particular interest in design and construction. From money, meals and marketing to community, sustainability and affordability, the hardest choice was narrowing down which workshops to attend.
The 2001 North American Cohousing Conference at the University of California, Berkeley was a great success with record numbers of participants.
In addition to presentations and workshops, special events included an auction and a “doctor-is-in” session in which experienced cohousers and cohousing professionals answered individual questions.
The 1999 North American Cohousing Conference was held in Amherst, MA, amidst the colorful fall foliage one weekend in October 1999. The two oldest cohousing communities on the East Coast – Pioneer Valley and Pine Street – jointly hosted the event. Unlike previous years where conferences were in convention facilities, the gathering took place in actual cohousing communities. In these venues, attendees experienced life in cohousing firsthand. They assisted in preparing meals, addressed building design and site planning issues, and spoke with residents about creating and living in a cohousing neighborhood.
More than 180 people representing 44 cohousing groups from 16 states gathered in September 1997 for the Third North American Conference in Seattle, WA. The conference provided an exceptionally wide array of learning opportunities, with dozens of sessions on topics ranging from getting started to site analysis, financing, marketing and getting the work done in a completed community.
