Welcome to Crete LETS members' area
Our LETS group begins its life as an affiliated branch of LETSlink UK, and we are therefore basing its operation on LETSlink UK's recommended Constitution and Members Agreement. These documents are amenable to change in consulation with all other branches, so please let us know of any drafting errors, inconsistencies, and/or suggestions to make them even better than they are.
If you wish to join and have not already done so, please complete our Application Form
Once you have joined, please explore the website. We aim to give all new members an introduction to get you started, but most of the functions you can find out by experimenting. If you would like to have access to detailed step-by-step instructions, please visit the Member Support Menu on the UK Local Exchange site. If you would like to attend, or even better to host a starter session, need ongoing support, or just occasional access to a computer - we want to ensure that nobody is excluded from using this system, and we will try to match those in need with a local "buddy" to help you at an appropriate level. To seek or offer help please go to Contact Us.
For more advanced support, for LETS organisers please try LETSlink UK's Technical Support pages.
In theoretical terms, LETS is a form of Complementary Currency, ie it complements the mainstream currency. As well as promoting a green agenda, this is to do with community networking, mutual support and alleviating poverty, and as such is a valid contribution to the international movement for monetary reform. The LETSlink UK site provides more ideas of what LETS is all about. If you would like to explore the wide range literature on the topic of "new economics", here is a Booklist, which we will try to keep up to date. Anything you know about which should be included please let us have it!
