This House Maintenance Coordinator Handbook was created by Madison Community Cooperative (MCC) to serve as a reference guide. It includes a detailed role description, things to be aware of, responsibilities checklists, house tool library, delegation guidelines, Work Day guidelines, Madison fire code info, and recommendations for hiring contractors. MCC has shared this handbook with NASCO so that other co-ops may adapt it for their own use.
Print out this meeting hand signals infographic to hang in your meeting space or to pass around before meetings to ensure that members are on fair footing when participating in group discussions.
