Letter to the Membership September 1, 2013

Dear Louisville TimeBank Members,

 

I have some exciting news to share with you. The Louisville TimeBank has grown larger and faster than I would have ever dreamt possible when I founded the TimeBank in January of 2012. This past spring there was a call put out to members for people to help with the TimeBank with its ever growing tasks. Several members stepped up to the challenge and have proved to be invaluable to making the TimeBank successful.

Along with day to day operations of running the TimeBank we started on what at the time seemed like the impossible task of creating an organizational structure for the TimeBank as well as deciding on a governance system.

 

Today it is my great pleasure to announce that we have appointed a founding board for the Louisville TimeBank. This first board is composed of people who have been working as coordinators, but in the future the board will be elected by the Louisville TimeBank membership.

We have in addition decided on a system of governance for the board and our new committees called Dynamic Governance. It is a consent-based decision making process that relies heavily on facilitation, and works from the standpoint that the whole group is smarter than the sum of its parts.  It matches particularly well with TimeBanking.  We have member Joan Pauly to thank for teaching us this process, as well as being our facilitator in creating our board and organizational structure. You can read more about Dynamic Governance here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sociocracy

In the next few weeks, Committee chairs will be setting up meetings for their committees and we would love for you to get involved! There will be many opportunities and different types of jobs and projects that we need to make the TimeBank successful. You of course receive time credits for any work that you do for the TimeBank.
