ALL AREAS - We're Having a Membership Drive. How can you help? 

Are you looking for a way to unite our community; meet more people; have more friends?

Then we have an opening for you.

The WideBayBurnett Community Exchange is looking to gain new members. Now is a great time while regular currencies are being choked. & unemployment is high.

We are looking for a person(s) who feels at ease conversing with others and has skills in canvassing, informing and signing up new members without being pushy.

You earn 20 Favours BONUS when you recommend that local people in our area register with us & type your "name &/or ID" in the section "Tell us how you heard about.........?" The system will pay you the existing member F20 Bonus.

78 23 Jul 2016

Do you want to help your Community Exchange? - Become a Local Area Contact (LAC)

Can you help? In each locality we need at least one person who has enough experience for people who have no computer and are running a paper-based system for their trading.

Non-computerised members may need to:

- join up on paper, or a libary computer;

- get the forms they need to keep their paper based trading records

- get a brochure

- drop off their trading sheets/slips for an LAC to process;

(WideBayBurnett CES does not offer a printing and posting service. Why? there are no membership $fees to cover these $expenses.)

Members without computers need to arrange to see current offers, wants and announcements or events calendars either by using their local library computers & printers, or by getting help from another member/friend with a computer.

The LAC receives a payment of F25 for each new registered CES user/member they assist to subscribe to WBB CES. Any other expenses in Favours or $$s are negotiable between the current member & the new member.

79 23 Jul 2016

From the Admin User Guide: "Local Area Co-ordinators are trusted users who are granted the ability to manage the accounts of others without having to know their passwords. In a sense they operate as 'branches of the bank' for those who do not have computers and those who do not wish to or are unable to manage their own accounts.

They are 'local area' because the aim is to have at least one co-ordinator in each sub-area to service those who do not have direct access to a computer.

The administrator grants co-ordinator status to users simply by marking them as such in their account profiles. Co-ordinators have access to a special co-ordinator's interface through their normal accounts. This is a cut-down administrative interface providing them with all the tools they need to manage the accounts of others. They are able to enter trades, offerings, wants, announcements and perform other actions such as printing out statements and offerings and wants lists. The interface also gives them access to a range of forms that can be printed for those who prefer to deal with paper.
