Merrimack Valley Time Exchange


The Merrimack Valley Time Exchange (MVTE) is a new "time bank" program at the Coalition for a Better Acre.  Community members can sign up to become members of the MVTE and after a reference check can choose to exchange services, skills and resources through the "time economy."  Members set up profiles listing services they are offering and those they are requesting, they earn "time credits" for providing services to other members and can spend these credits to get services they need from any other member of the time exchange.  One hour of service is always worth one unit of credit.  As the program grows and new members join the services offered through the exchange become more and more diverse.

This is a great resource for artists, who may be looking to exchange their creative skills for business, marketing, or other resources.
