Membership Guidelines

(Please note: these guidelines are still in development. Ed: July 2017)

LLC Member – membership is per household. General requirements:

  • Must be 19 years of age or older
  • Complete and sign the membership questionnaire and affirmation
  • Pay $150 non-refundable deposit and start monthly payments of $10 due on the first of the month
    • The deposit buys equity in the eventual Limited Liability Corporation.
    • The deposit amount increases every six months starting June 2017 to reflect the higher value as Armadillo Cohousing (“AC”) moves forward. Thus, on January 1, 2018, deposit will increase to $200, on June 1, 2018, to $250, etc. We reserve the right to reevaluate the increased amount at any time.
  • Read through our Decision Log and any other important documents we produce (Vision Statement, etc.).
  • Learn about the consensus process as we utilize it.
  • Be assigned a “Buddy” to help catch up with the group’s progress so far.
  • Join a committee.
  • Commit to four hours of work a month outside of the meetings.
  • Attend at least one bimonthly meeting each month, preferably both.
  • If you miss a meeting, you’re expected to read the minutes and catch up with what you missed.
  • Attend workshops as needed to grow the community.
  • Agree to respond to communications from the group in a timely manner.

Agreeing to these points grants the undersigned full rights in consensus decision making and voting processes.

Landed Member – This level of membership will be fleshed out more as we get closer to buying land. It will be reserved for members who intend to put money down to purchase a unit in our community.

  • As a Landed Member, you agree to:
    • pay all dues and other payments in a timely manner
    • stay involved by attending general and committee meetings
    • inform the group if unable to attend a meeting, stay informed about the missed meeting by reading the minutes, and asking questions of other members as well as watching video of meeting if available
    • transfer responsibilities to other members if unable to complete them for any reason
    • follow the policies laid out for consensus decision making

If you are interested in joining us, please send us a note and come to the next meeting!
