The Kansas Credit Union Association launched its Innovation and Implementation Lab Kick-off Conference Tuesday in Wichita, Kan., with the theme: Inspire. Create. Innovate.

The lab, an initiative of KCUA, was created to encourage ongoing and continuous curiosity to generate revolutionary ideas to serve Kansas credit unions and their members.

The lab will consist of two 10-member teams--the Think Tank team and the Dream to Destination team. The Think Tank team will foster the continued advancement of Kansas credit unions through progressive idea generation. The ideas it generates will be handed over to the Dream to Destination team, which will act as puzzle solver, putting the ideas into action.

The teams, which will be selected in July, will meet regularly throughout the year, said KCUA.

The conference featured experts from inside and outside the credit union industry, including entrepreneur Wil Schroter, Filene Research Institute's Matt Davis, and economist Max Wolff.

Afternoon breakout sessions included brainstorming activities and building a working list for the Think Tank team to develop during 2013.

About 60 staff and volunteers from 23 Kansas credit unions attended the day-long event.
