Hiring Professionals to Get Your Community Built
WebChat #8 brought one of the most experienced cohousing professionals in the US to us for a discussion of facilitators and architects and attorneys - oh my! Katie guided us through the usual process for creating cohousing, including common pitfalls for communities. She covered who to hire and when to hire them, how to select them and when it is a good idea to hire from within your group. She also described best practices for working with professionals and keeping them excited and committed to your project. Hint: Send them flowers when they complete a big step for you!
