The Memphis-based National Cotton Council communicates united industry positions on various issues to appropriate government bodies, and works for U.S. policy that assures worldwide competitiveness and protects member's income. The NCC has compiled an impressive record of advocacy for an industry in which farms and businesses directly involved in the production, distribution and processing of cotton employ more than 125,000 workers and produce direct business revenue of more than $21 billion. Accounting for the ripple effect of cotton through the broader U.S. economy, direct and indirect employment surpasses 280,000 workers with economic activity of almost $100 billion.
