Cooperative Accounting is unique. It is not really taught in school. With the growing financial power of 22,770 cooperatives and millions of members with billions of transactions in the Philippines, business organizations must understand their language of business if they want to capture opportunities in this rich but unnoticed market.

Coops have a different income statement (called statement of operations), different balance sheet (statement of financial conditions) unique chart of accounts, and different terminologies such as statutory funds, patronage refunds, net surplus, etc. How do you really read, analyze and interpret coop financial statements if you are a member of the coop management and board, if you are the bank lending to them, the accounting firm servicing your coop client, or the business that want to understand its financial soundness to do B2B transactions? Are you ready with your COOPeration & COOPetition with them? Attend if you want to tap this rich market!
