MADISON, Wis. (3/18/08)--The Filene Research Institute is seeking 12 new members for its i3 (ideas, innovation and implementation) research group. The 39 members of i3 are credit union innovators from the U.S. and Canada who study factors affecting credit unions, and explore demographic changes, buying and investment patterns and needs of consumers to create sustainable growth for credit unions. Members reflect diversity in experiences, credit union positions, geography and credit union membership. They serve three-year terms, must be in a position of substantial responsibility (but not yet a CEO) and are required to attend two national meetings per year. Support from their credit union is essential. Candidates can apply online by May 27. For more information, use the link.
