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 may be able to arrange special orientations in extreme cases if our schedule doesn't work for you (please email us). 

2.     After the orientation, a volunteer coordinator will enable this website to send you a login link, so that you can create an online profile. You will only have access to the public sections of the site until you become a full member.

3.     Please pay our suggested annual dues donation ($25 for 2022, sliding scale).  You can make a dues Donation with a credit/debit card, using our PayPal account or send in a check to our PO box below. 

Once a coordinator verifies that you've completed all the 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
