Partnership savings with CohousingUS

To take advantage of not only access through the end of 2022 to recorded past conference sessions but also discounts for this year's CohousingUS Conference in Madison, WI, donate $60 or more to Twin Cities Cohousing Network (TCCN) and receive these Cohousing Association of the United States "partnership" benefits.

As a comparison, joining the CohousingUS individual partnership program (for the same benefits) costs $150; joining with TCCN is a savings of $90 per calendar year.

A plug for CohoUS national conferences, including the one this August in Madison, WI--they're great places to make connections with a range of cohousing professionals who can advise you in your pursuit of cohousing.
