Advocates Community of Practice
August 9 @ 15:15 - 16:45 UTC
An event every month that begins at 15:15 on day Second of the month, repeating indefinitely
At SoFA, we offer free communities of practice to our working and supporting members. Our most active and oldest one, Advocates for Sociocracy in Community, is meeting soon!
This online gathering offers a space for members of forming or established intentional communities to share and support each other with their experience implementing and using Sociocracy.
This community of practice is for you if you’re already trained and using Sociocracy in a forming or established co-housing, ecovillage or other intentional community, and you want to share your experience, get support from other community members and from SoFA trainers and staff, or just meet fellow community and sociocracy enthusiasts.
When joining a session of our online gathering, you will meet participants from forming and established communities such as Port Townsend Ecovillage (OR), Pioneer Valley Community (MA), Bridport Cohousing (UK), Eden Community (TX), and Cohousing Hamilton (ON-CA). We discuss themes such as how to implement Sociocracy, conflict resolution, policy vs operations, managing objections, and much more.
We meet once a month, for 1h30, at 3:15 pm UTC (see local time here). It’s a drop in group, and we’d be delighted to meet you and learn about your community in our next session.
These sessions are a free offer for our SOFA members.
