How to get involved!
At MICO we are actively recruiting new members to get involved in helping to shape our community and ultimately become our neighbours!
Becoming a member give you the best chance of being allocated a home once our community becomes reality. Every extra hand on deck also helps the project progress and helps us on the road to getting on site – all skills are welcome. You don't need to be any kind of specialist, just a willingness to chip in and an enthusiasm for cohousing.
All ages and backgrounds are welcome – from young families, to single people and downsizers. So please get in touch, we would love to meet you.
Once you are involved, we have a regular schedule of meetings of our Operations group, our various Working Groups, as well as monthly social meetups on the second Saturday of each month.
The diagram below sets out the 'path to membership' for those interested. However the first step is just to get in touch with us using the contact form below. Someone from our Membership Working Group will be in touch for a chat, to answer any questions and help you understand how you might fit in.
Our Membership Policy sets out in detail the duties and responsibilities of being a member. It includes a full explanation of the different levels of membership available. These are:
Supporter: if you want to help the scheme progress without necessarily wanting to live there. We will keep Supporters informed of progress with the project and invite you to attend the social meetings and take part in any Working Groups you are interested in.
Associate (prospective) member: For those interested in living in the community, as an initial step you will be asked to become a Prospective Member. With this membership, you will be asked if you would like to attend social meetings, as well as having the opportunity to become involved with the Development Group or with a Working Group (fee applies).
Full member: Full membership is designed for those who have strong and realistic intentions to live within the ManCoHo development. To be considered for full membership, it is considered that you should have attended at least 3 group meetings (fee applies).
