Presentation at Great Lakes Chapter Meeting of NSAC Builds Bridge with Future Practitioner Partner

Brent Hueth presented preliminary results from the UWCC's on-going Cooperative Business Study at the National Society of Accountants for Cooperatives Great Lakes Chapter meeting on June 14-15. Providing an overview of current Center research efforts, he also discussed the need for accountant practitioner involvement in upcoming research efforts.

Research-based information on cooperatives can provide the resources to improve cooperative performance, by first better understanding how cooperatives are different from other business structures, and why those differences are important. Important cooperative differences may not be reflected on the balance sheet, so understanding behavioral differences in governance is important too. As the Center’s cooperative governance study winds up, developing the next phase on financial best practices with the involvement of NSAC would strengthen the research effort.

NSAC has expressed interest in developing a relationship, and is working with UWCC to also explore educational programs that the Center could support.
