Hello! We are delighted you are interested in becoming a member of Community Skill Exchange-Sacramento a Friends and Neighbors Time Bank. There are a couple of steps to complete in order to join the CSE community of traders. These required steps are a way for us to get to know each other and to answer all your questions before you begin trading your many skills and talents. We want you to feel confident and enthused about supporting the time bank vision of strengthening community by offering service to others, making new friends and building generosity, trust and support in Sacramento neighborhoods.
The first step in becoming a member of CSE is to be our guest at a monthly Potluck followed by an Information Presentation and New Member Orientation. This will give us a chance to meet, share our vision with you and answer any questions about time banking. At the Potluck you will meet the members and acquaint yourself with our group. (see event calendar).
Following the Potluck is the Information Presentation and New Member Orientation. This is the next step to become a member. In this section we will show a video, answer questions and then review our Member Handbook. We will also cover the Community Weaver User Guide answering questions regarding the online process. If you choose to become a member at this time you will fill out the membership application and make a contribution of the $ 10 Individual yearly dues. Family dues depend on the number of family members. Organizations have a rate scale based on income.
A Community Weaver Software Tutorial is offered to any member who needs help with the online process. We host group and individual software tutorials. Let us know what your needs are and how we can help. No computer? We can offer a couple of solutions so please inquire.
