NATCCO Ruby Celebration!

The National Confederation of Cooperatives (NATCCO Network) celebrates this year its 40th or Ruby Anniversary  in a three-day activity from May 25-27 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Ortigas Avenue.


The NATCCO Network was established in 1977 as a training center for cooperatives, and today is composed of 804 cooperatives managing the combined investments of 4.7 million individual members amounting to P130 Billion.  .   


NATCCO Network aims to help co-ops serve their members better thru coop-specific financial software, ATMs, Training & Consultancy, Deposits & Loans, Stabilization Fund, and life and loan insurance.  Advocacies of the Network include Youth & Gender Development, disaster-readiness, Social Performance, and compliance of co-ops with regulations.


Expected to attend are the leaders of the member-cooperatives nationwide, as a powerhouse list of speakers will be sharing their messages of inspiration and updates on the local and international cooperative scene.  


Keynote speaker will be Rep. Vilma Santos-Recto.  Congresswoman Recto, a popular actress, had served as Governor of Batangas Province for three consecutive terms and as mayor of Lipa City, also for three consecutive terms.  She had supported cooperatives in her Province, and as a legislator is a member of the House Committee on Cooperatives.


International Speakers include Balu Iyer, Director of the International Cooperative Alliance (Asia-Pacific) based in India, and Elenita San Roque, CEO of the Association of Asian Confederation of Credit Unions in  Thailand, composed of 21,947 cooperatives in Asia.


The General Assembly will be held on the second day, with the NATCCO Management presenting the organization’s performance report and financial statements, representatives of the member cooperatives will vote on the new members of the Board of Directors, and then decide on the policy directions of the organization.  Theme for the General Assembly is NATCCO @ 40: Cooperating and Integrating Toward a Golden Future.


“Integration” has been a recurring theme of the Network, emphasizing pooling of resources, standardization of operations, contractual solidarity, and disciplined self-governance among the Network’s 804 members.


Another highlight of the second day will be the awarding of NATCCO’s top depositors, shareholders, credit patronizers, ATM Acquirers, ATM Issuers, Training Patrons, CCT Conduits, and Golden Co-ops.  


Also to be recognized are past Chairpersons (living and posthumous), Chief Executive Officers, Partner Organizations (both local and international), and long-term employees.


On the third day, ACCU Chief Technical Officer, Ranjith Hettiarachchi, will speak on Financial Inclusion and the UnitedNations Sustainable Development Goals, where co-ops are to help meet the UN’s goals for 2030.


This will be followed by a panel discussion on “Digital Finance and Financial Inclusion” where officials of  NATCCO, ACCU, Philippine Federation of Cooperatives, and banking systems partners Software Group and Temenos will provide insight.


Motivational Speaker on the third day, May 27, will be successful basketball coach and TV5 CEO, Chot Reyes. Known to be the “Coach of Champions,” Reyes is reputed to emphasize teamwork and has succeeded in turning underdog teams into champions.  In 2013 he took over Sports5, the sports division of TV5 Network, Inc, turned the half-billion peso losses into profit in 2 years.

Since most of the members of cooperatives are employees, farmers, fisherfolk, professionals, youth, and workers, the NATCCO Network has opposed a Bill filed in Congress to remove the tax exemptions of co-ops as stipulated in the Cooperative Code.
