Board of Directors Election

The Board meets monthly and directors typically volunteer 1 - 4 hours per month. We currently have 3 directors and are hoping to recruit new directors to help us as we transition into a new working relationship with the Dane County Timebank. There has never been a more exciting and important time to be involved with local currency in Madison, Wisconsin.

Currently, our Board is capped at 5 members but we are also seeking to change our by-laws to allow for up to 9 directors.

I encourage everyone to strongly consider running for these positions. It is a great way to help the local community by strengthening our local currency system. Whether you are new to our system or an old pro, your insight will be helpful and put to good use. There is a long way to go to realize the potential this project has to transform our community. The main thing holding us back is people-power so please consider volunteering for the Board.

All current voting members are eligible to nominate themselves. If you are a non-voting member you can upgrade your membership by simply paying the annual fee.

Nominations are due by May 1, 2012 at 6 pm. To nominate yourself, email a Candidate Statement which should include: a short bio of relevant experience, a description of your goals and ideas for Madison Hours and a summary of your experience with the system (or any similar systems) to postmaster@madisonhours.org.

Ballots will be mailed to all eligible voting members. Members may also vote at the annual membership meeting which will be announced on our website and will be included in the ballots mailed to members.

Thanks for your consideration. Please feel free to call me with any questions.
