Join a TimeBanking 101 Orientation

If you are interested in joining or starting a TimeBank an orientation is a great place to start, orientations are also great if you are already a TimeBank member but would like a refresher.

Our usual TimeBanking 101 Orientations are the first Wednesday of the month at 5:30 PM, so the next two are December 2 and January 6 at this Zoom link. It would also be helpful to us if you could fill out this short survey ahead of time.

Michigan Alliance of TimeBanks Learning Circle meetings
Generally on the 1st Saturday of each month (barring holidays), 11am-1pm. These potluck meetings are for TimeBank coordinators and those interested in learning about TimeBanking.

December 2021 Meeting: This will be our Annual End of Year Celebration! We’ll gather at Alice’s house (870 Gladstone, Detroit) from 11 AM to 1 PM to share a potluck and celebrate the year we have had. Unless it is raining we will be outside around a bonfire, so please dress accordingly.

January 2021 Meeting: We are meeting on January 8 over Zoom from 11 AM to 1 PM. We will have Stephen Beckett from the hOurworld Co-op joining us to talk about the new version of the TimeBanking software that is coming out after years of anticipation! Since our guest will be joining us virtually this meeting will be virtual only, we’ll return to an in-person option in February.
