Upcoming events

Michigan Alliance of TimeBanks Learning Circle meetings
Generally on the 1st Saturday of each month, 11am-1pm. These potluck meetings are for TimeBank coordinators and those interested in learning about TimeBanking. Please join us and bring a dish to share.

March 2020 Meeting: On March 7 our topic will be Youth Engagement at Bridging Communities (6900 McGraw in Detroit). Networking and potluck starting at 10:30 AM, meeting from 11 AM to 1 PM. Youth from Unity in Our Community TimeBank will join us to talk about what TimeBanking means to them and why they are engaged. We’ll think about how all our Michigan TimeBanks can better engage and serve the youth of our communities. Continuation of discussion started in January.

April 2020 Meeting: On April 4 our topic will be Project Planning at Peace Lutheran Church (17029 W 13 Mile Rd in Southfield). Networking and potluck starting at 10:30 AM, meeting from 11 AM to 1 PM. How do we turn our dreams and vision into concrete steps? We’ll do some workshopping around creating and executing project plans to make all our TimeBank dreams come true. If you cannot attend in person you can call in at (425) 436-6390 and use access code 558247#

May 2020 Meeting: On May 2 our topic will be Fundraising and Crowdfunding at Peace Lutheran Church (17029 W 13 Mile Rd in Southfield). Networking and potluck starting at 10:30 AM, meeting from 11 AM to 1 PM. While TimeBanking doesn’t necessarily involve money, having a little cash can help make projects happen. Brooke Harris from In Our BackYards (ioby) will come talk to us about the basics of crowdfunding and fundraising.

June 2020 Meeting: On June 6 our topic is to be determined but our plan is to meet in Pontiac at the home of a Pontiac SUN TimeBank member. Watch this space for more information.

July 2020 Meeting: On July 11 our topic will be Privacy and Safety at Nancy Chinn’s home. Meeting from 11 AM to 1 PM, swimming in Nancy’s pool afterwards (so we won’t meet early this time). TimeBanking involves meeting new people and that can make some folks nervous. How do we make sure that people in our TimeBank are safe and feel safe.
