Filene seeks directors for online governance survey
MADISON, Wis. (3/18/10)--The Filene Research Institute asks current and former credit union board members to participate in a study to measure the effectiveness of credit union governance. Respondents can access the 20-minute, online-only survey by using the resource link. The password is “filene.” The survey will be open through Wednesday. Filene and researchers at the Clarkson Centre for Board Effectiveness at the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto, seek to identify current strengths and weaknesses of credit union boards and directors, and to highlight governance trends during the past five years. A report summarizing the findings will be available this summer to interested credit union system organizations. “Credit union governance is perhaps our most important topic for rigorous academic research right now,” said George Hofheimer, Filene chief research officer. “The coming years will be pivotal for credit unions and credit union leaders. Only by gathering feedback from diverse perspectives can we best understand the characteristics and needs of credit union boards and directors.” The research is supported by the Credit Union Executives Society.
