American Consumer Council

What is the American Consumer Council?

The American Consumer Council (ACC) is a non-profit membership organization dedicated to consumer education, advocacy, and financial literacy. There is no cost for Neighborhood Credit Union members to join the ACC.
The ACC was established in 1987. Its mission is to educate consumers on the purchase of safe, reliable products and services, to serve as a voice for consumer advocacy and economic wellness in the United States, to educate consumers in the area of financial literacy and to recognize companies for their environmental stewardship and corporate social responsibility.



How ACC Benefits American Consumers

The ACC has built its reputation for championing consumer advocacy by encouraging manufacturers and service-based companies to make safe, reliable products that American consumers can trust and recommend to their friends and neighbors. In those instances where a company or industry is found to have abused consumers, or offered a product/service that is harmful to consumers or the environment, ACC has brought the full force of its membership muscle and media relations program to persuade consumers not to support deceitful businesses. In this era of social networking and rapid global communication, ACC’s approach to enforcing high standards on behalf of consumers has proven to be extremely effective.

How to Join the ACC

If you choose to join the ACC through Neighborhood Credit Union, we will provide the following enrollment information to the ACC on your behalf: your name, address, email address, and telephone number. Your participation in the ACC is strictly voluntary. You will have the option to unsubscribe or opt-out of the quarterly email newsletter at any time.
