Local Exchange News

Welcome to About Time! Exchange

A service exchange, or time bank, is a network of individual, organizational and business 'members' that provide services, track and bank their hours and then spend those hours to get their own needs met. A service exchange is NOT a barter network, since nothing is 'exchanged'. One 'member' provides a friendly, neighborly favor to another and records the time they spent doing so.

Each member's time is valued equally. Everyone has something to offer, and needs to be met.
