Washington, DC (September 15, 2015)—The National Council of Farmer Cooperatives (NCFC) today announced the launch of a new, redesigned version of its website, www.ncfc.org. The new site features a clean, modern design, easy-to-navigate interface for users and highlights the wide range of issues NCFC works on behalf of America’s farmer-owned cooperatives.
NCFC’s new website has been completely reorganized to provide members and visitors with even more relevant and easy-to-find information on the current legislative and regulatory issues impacting farmer co-ops. On the Issues Page, information including issue briefs, press releases, letters, testimonies and comments are organized into eight issue areas: Agricultural Policy & Risk Management, Capper-Volstead Act, Environment & Energy, Food & Nutrition, International Affairs, Labor & Infrastructure, Rural Development and Tax & Accounting.
The redesign also includes an upgrade to the Membership Map, found on the About Page of the site. The map, which also features an easily sortable list view, showcases each of NCFC’s co-op members from across the country. By clicking on a member, the user is then directed to a page with additional information about the cooperative.
“We are in a technological age with a wealth of information right at our fingertips. We wanted to make sure information about NCFC, our farmer co-op members and the issues we work on is easily accessible,” said Chuck Conner, president and CEO of NCFC. “We are excited about the new site, and believe it will help us have an even stronger voice in Washington on issues impacting co-ops and their farmer-owners.”
