New Member Process
“Cohousing sounds like something I might like to be a part of. How can I explore this further?”
We offer regular orientation sessions prior to our business meetings, and will provide a contact person to make sure you have plenty of opportunities to learn more, both about cohousing in general and our community in particular.
Venue for orientation sessions - Grace United Methodist Church, 5407 N. Charles St. 21210 (intersection of N. Charles and Northern Pkwy.) 6-8 pm; guest orientation 5-6 pm.
**All orientations and meetings will be held by Zoom until further notice
on the 1st Wednesday of the month at 5 PM**
Please email for more info.
Potential new members can attend up to three business meetings before making a decision about whether CGB is a good fit. If you then are interested in joining us, initial membership dues are $100 per household, with an ongoing commitment of $10 per month per member. We also expect members to engage with our working committees and to make a commitment to attend meetings regularly.
We encourage you to start by doing some additional reading and research. An excellent source of information about senior cohousing is the Senior Cohousing Handbook by Charles Durrett. Another valuable resource is the website of the Cohousing Association of America.
