Membership Benefits

NSAC provides a variety of training sessions, publications, and research tools to enhance the professional competence of its members and improve the level of service they can offer cooperatives.

Education

One of the most beneficial offerings we provide, NSAC members are able to gather information online, in-person and through different resources all-year.

Tax, Finance and Accounting Conference for Cooperatives (TFACC) is an annual national conference featuring noted presenters and numerous breakout sessions on developments in cooperative tax, finance, accounting, auditing and management topics. TFACC attendees can earn 20 or more Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits.

Basic and Advanced Cooperative Accounting Seminars offer training in the core concepts unique to working for or with cooperatives such as equity management, tax planning and risk management.

Cooperative Learning Networks (CLNs) are webinars that provide easy access to presentations, panel discussions and conversations by leading experts and fellow members on a variety of topics and issues important to those in the cooperative world. There are no travel expenses, no time away from the office and the best part – members may attend an unlimited number, all included with their annual membership dues. Recordings are archived for on-demand viewing.

Chapter Annual Meetings and Educational Programs provide technical programming and valuable networking and information exchange on key topics.

Resources

The Cooperative Accountant (TCA) is a quarterly technical journal published for nearly 70 years featuring timely and useful information on cooperative tax, accounting, finance, and economic issues.

The Tax Library is an online searchable database of IRS administrative rules, rulings and court cases concerning the tax treatment of cooperatives.

Welcome to Cooperatives is a booklet providing a basic explanation of how cooperatives are organized and operated, including equity management and tax treatment. It is a must-read for new employees without a background in cooperatives.

Connections

Alliances with organizations such as FASB, IFAS, IRS, NCBA, NCFC and others. For many years, NSAC limited its activity to reporting on developments of importance to its members. However, as we move forward, the leadership continues to recognize the need to work with other organizations inside the accounting community as well as the cooperative community to make sure the rapidly changing environment continues to keep the unique needs of cooperatives top of mind.

Communication is key with members and we strive to provide access to the latest information through our Connect platform, blogs, CLNs, conference presentations and social media.

Leadership development opportunities are available to all members through chapter and national board service, speaking engagements, writing opportunities, connections and mentorships.
