I write today on behalf of the Madison Hours Board of Directors with some important news about the future of Madison Hours local currency.
As you may be aware, the paper currency will continue to circulate but under the management of the Dane County Time Bank (DCTB). The Madison Hours Cooperative will cease to exist on Dec 31, 2013.
I have the plans need a carpenter to purchase wood & put it together.

A meeting to discuss and vote on a proposal initiated by the Board of Directors to dissolve the Madison Hours Cooperative and transfer our assets and programs to the Dane County Timebank. We have been working closely with the Dane County Time Bank over the past two years to develop a plan to better integrate our systems. With paid staff and an active community of members we believe this is the best way to preserve and expand the Hours system.
The complete text of the proposal is here:

Madison Hours Cooperative will be moving in with the Dane County Timebank. We have been working closer with them and this "just made sense." We will be paying them the same rent that we had been paying to the Social Justice Center.
Even though we haven't moved in yet, we invite you to come see the space this Thursday, Feb 21 from 4 -7 pm. The Dane County Timebank is having an open house and encouraged us to invite our members. It'll be a good chance to learn more about the great work that they are doing.
Where: 1202 Williamson St. Suite 107.
