Note: The calls will generally be of three kinds:
• Open Forums, where all coordinators on the call are invited to pose questions or comments and seek responses from other coordinators on the call. The subject line in the invite will include the words “Open forum.”
• Topic Forums, where the presenter puts a specific topic on the table for the participants on the call to discuss. The call opens with a short introduction by the presenter as to the topic up for discussion, then turns to the participants for a discussion.
• Coordinator Sharing calls, an established coordinator (or in some cases two or more coordinators from the same timebank) shares his or her experience relating to a specific aspect of timebanking, and then answers questions or comments from those on the call. The chosen topic will appear in the subject of the invite.
