Share Conversation on Structure and Governance for Time Banks and Currencies

Event Details

Time banks, barter networks, and community currencies are sprouting up around the world, but many struggle with the questions, such as:

  • What legal entity should be formed?
  • What tax exemption is available? 
  • How should the organization be governed and managed?
  • What are strategies for fostering member engagement? 

The Sustainable Economies Law Center (SELC) recognizes that these are threshold questions, because the legal and governance structures we develop become the platform for our new economy. SELC would love to share insights we have gained and to continue learning from the strategies of new and existing time banks, barter networks, and community currencies. This event will be a participatory group discussion with a short presentation by SELC. Insights that we gain will likely be shared on our growing website, CommunityCurrenciesLaw.org.

This event is co-hosted by The Hub Berkeley, the wonderful space where SELC staff and interns go to work!

SELC Logo

The Sustainable Economies Law Center (SELC) charts the changing legal territory of the new economy, educating communities and individuals about the possibilities and limits of creative economic structures, and advocating for laws that clear the way for more sustainable economic development. SELC provides essential legal tools — education, research, advice, and advocacy — to support this transition to localized, resilient economies. Our work focuses on practices that promote justice and sharing, including cooperatives, community currencies, community-supported enterprises, local investing, cohousing, urban agriculture, community renewable energy, and other innovative economic strategies.
