Filene Field Trips: Escaping the Cul-de-Sac for the Autobahn

Filene Field Trips: Escaping the Cul-de-Sac for the Autobahn

Credit unions operate in a veritable cul-de-sac of ideas, information, processes, and talent. This is the safest, most comfortable neighborhood in the business world; a cooperative, collaborative, friendly, and safe place to develop and share ideas. We couldn’t imagine working anywhere else.

As comfortable as we are, however, the Filene Research Institute is constantly looking outside this cul-de-sac to find answers to pressing problems. Connecting credit unions to thought leaders in academia, business, and industry is critical to helping us progress as a system. Trips to the autobahn are exhilarating, exhausting, and essential. We want you to join us.

Social media come with their share of promise, perils, and pitfalls for credit unions. The technologies are mature enough that everybody knows about them, but what can credit unions do with them. We put three questions to Filene’s newest research fellow, Hope Jensen Schau, PhD, Associate Professor and Gary M. Munsinger Chair in Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the University of Arizona’s Eller College of Management.

Join us on Monday June 18th for the Filene’s Annual Membership Luncheon & Meeting in San Diego at ACUC where Hope will speak. Click here for additional details and registration.
