Becoming a Member
Ahi Wai Eco-Neighbourhood will be run by its members. While the site is under construction potential members are kept updated via emails and occasional meetings.
When sections are for sale you will have the opportunity to attend meetings and to make decisions about the setup of our neighbourhood.
See Contact Us to be put on mailing list. If you would like to find out more about becoming a member, it all starts with a cup of tea.
Clear communication and a tried and true decision-making process are what ensure that we don’t waste hours in agonising meetings. All members sign up for our communications agreement and while this is easier said than done, we revisit it often so it is part of our group culture.
Our Decision-making process uses a card system during our meetings. This helps us run meetings where all get a fair chance to have their say. We believe that a good decision is one where as many perspectives as possible are taken into account. So we use consensus decision-making but on those rare occasions when a decision needs to be made quickly – we move to a two thirds vote.
