How To Join Our Time Bank

1.     First, please attend an orientation for new members.  This is the first and most important step as we cannot allow new members without a face to face interaction, for the safety of all members.  See our event calendar for the next scheduled potluck and orientation, generally held monthly.  We can arrange special orientations if our schedule doesn't work for you (please email us). 

2.     After the orientation, a volunteer coordinator will email you a membership application link, enable this website to send you a login link, and be your contact throughout the joining process in case you have any questions.

3.     Please pay our suggested annual dues donation ($25 for 2019, sliding scale).  You can optionally make a dues Donation with a credit/debit card, using our PayPal account. 

4.     Finally, please create an user account on this website using the link that was emailed to you in step 2.  Once a coordinator verifies that you've completed all four steps, you'll have full access to the site and you'll be able to start banking your hours. 

Group and Organizational Memberships

An organized or informal group may join Our Time Bank. This includes clubs, churches, non-profits, businesses, social agencies, and educational institutions of all types. Services are exchanged between other groups and individuals. All exchanges are credited and debited to the group.

If you think your group might benefit from Time Banking, please begin by attending one of our orientations. A coordinator will be able to discuss the options and benefits of joining, then email you an organizational membership application and a organizational member services worksheet.  This will be used to help identify skills and needs of organizational members. If you need special assistance, please contact a coordinator
