Dena Marger
Dena says:"I love the idea that the Time Trade provides an alternative economic system to the one which is currently killing us and our planet! I love how it builds community. I love how it provides for people who might otherwise not be able to afford important services. I am excited to serve as a board member to help all this continue to happen.  Presently, I am helping with grant writing for the Time Trade and with editing this newsletter!

Katherine Barratt
Katherine has been a member of the Time Trade for 9 years. She is attracted to the concept of alternative currency and a chance to broaden her "community." She says: "I have served a 3 year term on the Board of Directors that ended last spring.  My enthusiasm to be on the current Board is my desire to work as a team without the need of a paid coordinator, focusing on the membership."

Nominations: Membership may nominate board members for election at the Annual Meeting or before. The following have already been nominated:
