Woo! The board package was submitted - now the co-op board will look at everything we have ever done in our lives and determine if we are people with whom they would like to be in a partnership.
It's amazing how much time and effort goes in to this - not including all the time that our friends and business associates have spent writing kind letters of recommendation, our realtor and I spent 6 and 1/2 hours together putting this package together.
On the one hand it's frustrating to think about this barrier to entry of ownership in the city, but on the other, it's great to know the requirements to become our partners in the future are sufficiently high that we aren't stuck in the same place the country finds itself.
One more step forward, and a number more to take :)
