Orientation Meetings

New Member-Owner Orientations are held several times each month, and are about three hours long. The Co-op can set up a personal appointment for you if you cannot make any of our regularly scheduled orientations, or if you are a person with special needs who would be better served by a private orientation.

Please call the Service Desk at 518-482-2667 x 210 to register for an orientation. You may refer to the Co-op’s calendar of classes for upcoming orientation dates, but will still need to call the Service Desk to reserve a space. To request a private appointment, please call Owner Services Coordinator Morgaen Hansen at 518-482-2667 x 104 or e-mail
