What are “Shares”?

Shares, generically known as ‘time dollars’, represent the amount of time one MCS member has spent helping other members. When you spend an hour helping another MCS member, one share gets added to your account and subtracted from the account of the member who received your service. Half and quarter hours can also be recorded. Shares can be exchanged at a one share per hour rate for services and goods being offered by someone in the organization.
