MADISON, Wis. (7/27/10)--The Filene Research Institute welcomed five new credit union CEOs to its research council. The council helps decide which topics Filene should research and which volunteers will pilot Filene innovations. It also works with Filene’s outside researchers to provide access and insight to the credit union system. The new members are:
