Dear Timebank member,
We are now asking all members to pay a subscription fee of NZ$10 or what you'd like to contribute per year.
Timebank Raglan operates via an online software programme called Community Weaver, provided by the Timebanks USA. We are part of their network, which includes 30 Timebanks in New Zealand and about 167 worldwide.
The software is the platform that enables members to connect, post offers and requests, log and manage hours, and much more. The software has been generously provided for free for many years. However, due to a higher demand for hosting new Timebanks, and the support, improvements, and maintenance that comes along with it, Timebanks USA have decided to charge all Timebanks a fee proportional to the number of members (more members = higher fees for each Timebank).
The subscription fee is to enable members to trade within Timebank, including access to the Timebank website. But if you think this is out of your budget, please come and talk to us. We don't want to see anyone leaving for financial restrictions.
The annual membership fee is due on 28th August. You will get a notification one month before to remind you of that.
To make your contribution for your subscription you can:
Bank deposit to Kiwibank, account name is Raglan Time, account number is 38-9002-0157563-05
Enter your name in the first reference field
and TimeBank SUB in the second reference field.
Please tell us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and the date paid.
If you have any questions or concerns, get in touch! Email us at email@example.com
