One of our goals of our community network is to help our local community rebuild our economy from the ground up. We do this by providing 3 different ways to participate in our community network.
The first way is by signing up to be a Member
All Members have access to coming events, newsletter articles and the ability to write their own articles and host their own events. to share with other members of the group.
The second way is by signing up to be a Service Provider
Historically, service providers were called Employees. However, we are using this term to describe anyone who wants to provide a service or product to another person or be hired by another person. Examples of Service Providers include plumbers, teachers, financial planners, landscapers, wellness coaches, singers, etc.
The third way is by signing up to be a Job Provider.
Historically, job providers were called Employers. However, we are using this term to describe anyone who wants to hire another person to provide a service for them. Job providers can include homeowners looking to hire a landscaper or plumber – or a parent looking to hire a teacher or mentor.
What is the difference between a Service Provider and a Job Provider?
You can sign up for more than one group. However, you will need to fill out a personal member form and then fill out a form for each new provider you sign up for.
This means that if you want to be a Personal Member and a Service Provider you will need to fill out two forms – one for your personal member account and one for your Service Provider Info. If you want to be a Personal Member, a Service Provider and a Job Provider, you will need to fill out three forms.
What do you get for being a Member of our Network?
All members get the benefit of being able to share information with other members that share your values. Personal Members get a place to find jobs and find people who offer the services they need. Service Providers get a place to get jobs, network with customers and promote their skills and or local business. Job Providers get a place to find hire others to do the work they need done.
How does our community network work?

Members can then select the Profile pages for each Service Provider to learn more about them, the services they are offering and how to contact them for more information.
