Early Bird Registration for 2011 Cohousing Conference Extended Until 7 April 11!

Because the 2011 National Cohousing Conference program team was overwhelmed by presenter applications this year, they were much later than expected in making the program schedule available.

This delay gave people very little time to view this information prior to the end of the early bird registration. Accordingly, they are extending the deadline for the best pricing to midnight on April 7, 2011.

After browsing the schedule in detail, it looks like they’ve got some relevant and exciting opening speakers, workshops, round-table discussions and panels. It’s going to be hard to choose between them, but here are a few that caught my attention:

Friday, 17 June
  • Cohousing 101 (with Chuck Durrett)
  • Family & Parenting in Community: Joys, Challenges & Lessons Learned
  • 21st Century Design Strategies for Sustainable Housing
  • Panel Discussion on Aging and Community
  • Cohousing & Sustainability Panel
Saturday, 18 June
  • Marketing Cohousing
  • Co-farming: Growing Food in Community
  • Secrets of Buidling a Great Coho Group
  • Headaches: RX for Meeting Moments That Are a Pain for Everyone
  • Using Social Media to Generate Buzz & Build Awareness of Your Project
Sunday, 19 June
  • The Timeline Game (with our local cohousing hero, Ann Zabaldo)
  • Compassionate Communication: Embracing Conflict Without Blame
  • Big picture Financing Strategy Round-table

Don’t forget that the urban and or rural cohousing community tours can be purchased separately from the conference package. (Prices for these go up, too, after 7 April.) Think of them as a mini-cohousing conference on wheels. Great for those who can’t stand sitting around listening to a speaker all day.
