Because TimeBanking is a new concept to most of us, all new members must attend an orientation meeting to learn the “rules of the road” before becoming an active member of SkillShare.

This Orientation will be held Wednesday November 9th from 6:30-8:30 pm at the iSupportU office on Pearl Street in Boulder.  iSupportU is a great local technology support business who kindly lets SkillShare use their meeting room.

If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Laura at

Address for iSupportU:
1825a Pearl Street
Boulder CO 80302

This address is on the East end of Pearl St; the part where cars can drive.  There is metered street parking in front of the iSupportU shop.

New Member Orientation Meeting – What to do beforehand and what to bring
During your orientation meeting, we will give you a broad overview of how SkillShare and time banking works.  We will also show you how to get signed up and logged on for using the SkillShare exchange software as well as how to build your profile and add your first Offers and Requests.

Prior to our meeting, please complete the following tasks:

  1. Fill out the first two pages of the Member Enrollment Form.  Please also review the other pages of the form and sign them.  If you have any questions, please jot them down and we’ll go over them when we meet.
  2. Please think about what skills you have that you’d like to offer the SkillShare community and of what skills you’d like to request.  On our website under the tab Current Services is a listing of Offers and Requests that will help get you thinking about this.  Please jot down several offers and requests on this sheet as you will be entering these in live during our meeting so you get some practice using the website.
  3. If you are comfortable with computers and feel able to, please click here to start to create your online profile. Just follow the instructions.  If you would rather not do this step on your own, not a problem.  We’ll go over how to do it during the meeting.
  4. Come to the meeting prepared to make your annual contribution to the organization.  The important work SkillShare does in strengthening our community is funded entirely by member contributions.  We ask that all new members make a $30 annual contribution.  If this will be a financial burden to you, we can discuss a lesser amount during our meeting.
  5. Come to the meeting prepared to have your photo taken for the website.  If you dislike the photo taken, you can upload your own preferred photo at a later time.

We look forward to meeting you!
