Membership

Members of the network are professionals and students of finance and accounting who are unified by our Common Aspirations. Members educate ourselves and each other about skills, resources and visions that are required for financial management of cooperative and solidarity enterprises in black and indigenous communities.

Professional members work in financial services like bookkeeping, accounting, finance, investment management, management consulting and related fields.

Student members study accounting, finance and related subjects. Student members may be in online classes, self-education, open enrollment classes, community college programs and university degree programs in accounting or finance.
