Click Join to create a new member account and you will be sent a notification email. (Please check your spam folder if you do not see it quickly.)
By confirming your email address, you will be verified and be given an account. However, you will still need to be approved by the Coordinator in order to fully access the website. In order to be approved and start Timebanking, we require every person to attend an hour-long Orientation session (currently held over Zoom). This Orientation is important to us so that everyone who applies feels connected into our community and has a clear understanding of what Timebanking is about. These are a no-stress, relaxed orientation to get to know our members, not an interview. Our coordinator will reach out to you to arrange it, but the Orientation is offered weekly on Wednesdays at 7 pm. If that time does not work with your schedule, we can also arrange a different meeting time. If you do not have access to Zoom or another video chat interface, we can discuss alternative ways of meeting. :)
After the Orientation and your Timebank's coordinator has approved your membership, you will have member access to this Timebank!!
- Reflect on your needs, wants, and the services you would be able to provide.
