For nearly one hundred years, NCBA’s mission has remained the same:

To develop, advance and protect cooperative business.

Our Vision

NCBA demonstrates that cooperatives are a better business model for providing domestic and global social and economic progress.

NCBA believes in the internationally recognized cooperative principles and values:

  • 1st Principle:   Voluntary and Open Membership
  • 2nd Principle:  Democratic Member Control
  • 3rd Principle:   Member Economic Participation
  • 4th Principle:   Autonomy and Independence
  • 5th Principle:   Education, Training and Information
  • 6th Principle:   Cooperation among Cooperatives
  • 7th Principle:   Concern for Community

Our Values

NCBA shares the same values system as most cooperatives.

Cooperatives base their existence on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity.  In the tradition of their founders, cooperative members believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility, and caring for others.
