Bay Area Community Exchange gathering

  • June 30, 2009 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This is not a cohousing-specific meeting, but it covers areas frequently discussed in cohousing: time banking / labor exchange, progressive values, group decision making, and online collaboration. We're hosting a future gathering of this group at the EBCOHO clubhouse in downtown Berkeley in part to explore where the connections are between this group and our movement. -- Raines

The Bay Area Community Exchange imagines a Bay Area that creates and uses complementary currencies and other means of exchange to support the progressive values of the people in the Bay Area. Further, we hope to raise consciousness about the ways in which established money and exchange systems undermine these values. General Schedule 6:30 - 7:00 PM Informal socializing (bring snacks / light food to share) 7:00 - 9:00 PM General meeting Notes: The agenda has yet to be set, and our meetings have tended to go a longer than the designated ending times. Likely topics to be explored include:

  • Time banking

  • Decision-making process

  • Online-technologies for collaboration and support

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
