A Core Group of interested members meets monthly to make policy decisions. We also have five committees: Events and Workshops, Membership, Administration, Tech, and Outreach. Members can earn hours for serving on committees. Please consider joining one of these committees–it’s a great way to meet fellow time traders and to help Valley Time Trade.


Valley Time Trade’s initial policies were developed by people interested in strengthening community up and down the Pioneer Valley. This core group formed out of three open sessions, and created policies based on research into how other successful time banks were operating. Community Action, Pedal People, and Class Action are all organizations that have contributed to creating Valley Time Trade.
