MADISON, Wis. (9/5/14)--The Filene Research Institute and the University of Toronto are asking U.S. and Canadian credit unions to complete a survey on how they address board turnover and composition. Responses are due Sept. 17. Filene invites one response per credit union.
Filene and the University of Toronto have formed a research partnership to examine the processes and structures used by U.S. credit unions to retain board members.
The study will focus on the processes that credit unions implement to facilitate appropriate turnover, and the impact of the processes on the effectiveness of board composition. The project builds on past Filene board renewal work from 2012 and 2010.
The data collected through this survey will be used to create a Filene report examining trends and best practices in board renewal, and provide credit union boards with up-to-date and practical guidance on effective board renewal.
