Just like any other business, DEC has financial requirements that must be met in order to stay operational. In order to do that, we have to have a Finance and Accounting team that is highly skilled and well versed in operating a not-for-profit business.
This includes a Chief Financial Officer (CFO), and staff accountants that handle payroll, accounts payable, accounts receivable, banking, billing, and other accounting duties. The Accounting and Finance teams helps DEC make better business decisions by evaluating financial risk and performing rate studies to ensure that operating costs and revenues remain in balance. They are also responsible for managing the Cooperative's loans and credit lines.
If you enjoy crunching numbers and analyzing financial data, you may be well suited for a career in Finance and Accounting.
