Membership Update

Dear Member,

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.
