The Cooperative Finance & Tax Council (CF&TC) is an NCBA member benefit that keeps your lead staff, accountants and legal advisers informed. The CF&TC focuses on key finance, tax, accounting and legal issues facing cooperatives.
The CF&TC tackles issues that affect your co-op’s bottom line by educating policymakers about the benefits of the cooperative model, and by defending against attacks that could undermine its long-term viability.
The CF&TC is run by a steering committee of cooperative legal, finance, accounting and tax experts, which meets several times a year to discuss accounting, legal or tax changes that may impact all co-op sectors. Working with NCBA staff, the committee determines the highest-priority issues for the CF&TC to address. Then, it identifies the appropriate position for the cooperative movement to advance, taking into consideration the needs of all co-op sectors.
All NCBA members can participate by reading the CF&TC Update, responding to action alerts, and letting NCBA know of any finance or legal issues that your co-op or sector faces.
