The Cape Town Talent Exchange (CTTE) was the first exchange group in the Community Exchange Network. It was launched in February 2003 with just a handful of members, mostly those who served as its initial steering committee. Within a year membership had grown to 324 and then things really started to take off.
From that time on, membership has grown steadily to its current membership of 5931, though not all those members are active.
Today the CTTE is one of the largest communities in the world using an alternative exchange system. Many members have benefitted enormously, being able to acquire goods and services that they would not otherwise contemplate. By giving and helping others a support network has developed, which all members can call on.
