Good Meetings
by Kim Kanney, Community Bookstore Manager

Best of Communities Vol IV digital compilationBest of Communities Volume IV
Good Meetings
A special selection of articles from Communities: Life in Cooperative Culture
$15 in print; $10 in digital

The Foundation for Intentional Community is pleased to offer you the cream of our crop-the very best articles that have appeared over the last 20 years in our flagship publications: Communities magazine and Communities Directory. We’ve distilled what we consider the most insightful and helpful articles on the topics that you-our readers-have told us you care about most, and have organized them into 15 scintillating collections.

Nearly every community will experience similar challenges when working and making decisions as a group. Glean the wisdom and trialed experiences from those that have lived and learned. The fourth compilation is all about meetings, group dynamics and facilitation. Read about how to make a meeting flow, how to allow space for everyone to share, and the risks of speeding up a process rather than taking its time through the issue.

With advice from Tree Bressen, Kat Kinkade and Laird Schaub (to name a few), you’ll find the essential lists for common topics like improving meeting dynamics, developing trust, effective note-taking, and more.

Best of Communities, Volume IV and all issues are available in print and digital formats. Or get the entire set for a discounted rate!

There is always more to explore. Check out these back-issues of yesteryears:

#140 Politics in Community (print and digital)
#109 Decision Making in Community (digital only)

#140 Politics in Community  Communities #109 Decision Making

And explore our books within the Group Dynamics category, many of which are on sale, including:

The Zen of Groups takes a practical and spiritual approach to the group by leaning into relationships, personal responsibility and the power of authenticity, built for facilitators and group members who use their group experience as a personal growth opportunity.
