Lunch with Ed

Edward Filene – ‘Ed’ as we affectionately call him around here – is the spiritual grandfather of American credit unions. Even though we named a research institute after him, he didn’t respond to our invitation for lunch. So we’re bringing his bust instead.

Live broadcasting by Ustream

Fortnightly for the foreseeable future you’re invited to join in as Filene staff discuss the latest research and innovation work at the Institute.

It’s 103% free, so if you want to attend, just sign up here.

As always, we won’t even think about using your email except to update you on Lunch with Ed. We’re just not like that.
