Mid-Atlantic Corporate Becomes Filene Gold Benefactor
MADISON, Wis. (3/26/13)--Mid-Atlantic Corporate FCU in Middletown, Pa., a longtime contributor to the Filene Research Institute, has increased its support of the institute's work and now is a Gold Benefactor.

Filene shares the corporate's commitment to the credit union model--particularly the desire to help improve the economic well-being of people and their communities, said Jay Murray, president/CEO of the corporate. 

"The Filene team has influenced our strategic thinking," Murray added. "We have discovered new ideas and created partnerships to advance the credit union cause. I find the interactions with the Filene team, the nationally recognized universities and the participating credit unions a tremendous benefit to our organization."

Filene is collaborating with Mid-Atlantic Corporate on internal strategic plans. The corporate has participated in several Filene projects, including:

  • A Filene i3 pilot program exploring a variation of the MoneyWorks program, now known as the Gatherings program, a direct sales model of financial services in a home party environment; and
  • Filene i3 and  big.bright.minds meetings where staff participated in innovation and research programming.
