A community needs to have ways to organize itself and to make decisions together.
At Rocky Corner, we want everyone to have an equal voice. Instead of having a superintendent like an apartment building or a board like a condo complex, Rocky Corner residents will be in charge and will do as much of the work together as they can.
We have chosen to make decisions using a proven, cutting-edge system called dynamic governance (aka sociocracy). Rocky Corner has been using this system since 2012 and it has enabled us to make decisions more efficiently while sustaining our spirit of community and cooperation.
Dynamic governance has helped Rocky Corner members divide the work of planning our community among several committees. These committees include groups dedicated to project management, community relations, design, welcoming, marketing, homes, land use and policies/procedures. New members and interested people may join any of our committees. All members and interested people are invited to attend the two “General Circle” meetings per month which include representatives from each of these committees.
Learning our system
To join Rocky Corner, all members are required to learn our decision-making process and how to implement dynamic governance to make our community run smoothly. We offer a range of training sessions year-round to accommodate a variety of schedules.
