Follow the money – understanding your cooperative’s financial statements and practices is essential for connecting the dots between your department’s decisions and activities and the organization’s financial position. This is an opportunity for you, as a non-accountant, to ask questions and gain insight into what the numbers mean, how they relate to each other, and how you impact them. Hands-on activities and scenarios will explore and clarify cooperative finance terminology, reporting, and strategies.
This course is an updated version of the 655 Accounting for Non-Accountants course. 255.1 builds on 655 to better target the core business acumen competencies needed by cooperative employees.
