Creating Agreements for Your Intentional Community

October 15, 2020 @ 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM EDT ,  $10 – $45


Creating Clear & Effective Agreements for Your Group


During this two hour workshop for community starters, we will explore the details of creating community agreements that are both clear and effective for your membership. The workshop will be specifically focused on the particulars of Buy-In/Buy-Out agreements. We’ll examine the spectrum of options for purchasing and selling memberships in communities, specifically the dynamic balance between meeting individual needs and community cohesion.  We’ll look at timing issues, payout options, restrictions on transfers, and equity formulas.  Participants will get an overview of the key factors and have an opportunity to ask questions.  Specific legal advice for particular situations will not be offered as this is a non-confidential forum.


Key Workshop Outcomes:

~ Understand the balance between individual/family needs and those of the greater community ~
~ Recognize the timing issues of notice, voting rights, and payout times ~
~ Grasp different forms and options for pay out of exiting members ~
~ Learn different equity models that could be utilized for a community ~
~ Get help shaping clear and effective community agreements ~


Register above to join this live workshop on Zoom and/or to receive the recording in case you can’t make it. October 15 from 46pm Eastern. See your local time.
