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.
The Cohousing Association of the United States has been presenting National Conferences for many years. They are offered in various cities around the United States to make the more accessible to people living in different regions. A key criteria when selecting a hosting city has been the availability of local cohousing communities and the level of support from local volunteers. Coho/US is happy to consider new locations.
