Why would you and your team travel to San Diego in December?

Because as a Filene member...

Because as a Filene member, you have access to the one event that brings together top learnings from top minds across consumer decision-making, operational excellence, talent retention, entrepreneurship and emerging technology.

        Because you can see what will impact your strategy in the new year.

        Because you will connect with an exclusive community of big thinkers inside and outside cooperative finance.
