i3 applications due Sunday
MADISON, Wis. (6/10/10)--Applications to participate in the Filene Research Institute's i3 innovation group are due by noon CT Sunday. Filene is seeking 17 new members for the group, which focuses on ideas, innovation and implementation and will develop an innovation competency for the next generation of credit union CEOs. Candidates will be selected and notified by June 16. Filene said there are typically at least five applicants for each opening. Many successful candidates apply two or three times before acceptance. The positions are available beginning in the fall. Applicants are recruited from natural person credit unions in the U.S. and Canada that are Filene Research Institute members. New this year, CEOs of credit unions under $50 million in assets are eligible to apply. Those applying should:
* Agree to one two-year term; * Obtain support from their CEO to be involved in the group; * Secure credit union commitment to cover travel and hotel expenses for two national meetings per year (or a total of five meetings); * Attend four two-to-three day meetings in the spring and fall: * Make a monthly time commitment to i3-related projects beyond the national meetings; * Gain support from their credit union to pilot and test at least one Filene i3 idea; and * Consent to the i3 participant agreement.
