We are very confident the time it took for you to join was time well invested once you fully understand the incredible potential of a service exchange.
Do know that this is a service exchange and NOT bartering since nothing is being 'exchanged' directly between two people. A service exchange or TimeBank is a network of individuals, organizational and business 'members' that provide services, track and bank their hours and then spend those hours to get their own needs met. One 'member' provides a friendly, neighborly favor to another and records the time they spent doing so.
To better orient yourself to a service exchange and your community network check out the membership guide, talk to other HNC members, make an appointment for an orientation, join us for our monthly potlucks, create your own TimeBank 'group' to meet your specific needs, or simply learn as much as you can by pushing buttons! You will quickly find your way around and will be impressed by the efficiency of this community network!
We thank you for taking the leap of faith and look forward to Empowering Community One Hour at a Time with you!
