Ready to innovate?
What is IIG?
ICUL has partnered with Filene Research Institute to offer the Iowa Innovation Group annually since 2013. The program focuses on teaching Iowa credit union leaders an innovation process that will help advance the credit union movement. Participants work in small groups to create new, innovative ideas and concepts that have the potential to be implemented for the benefit of Iowa credit unions.
What does an IIG participant do?
Participants attend workshops and webinars to work through the innovation process over a period of six months. During that time they work with team members to identify problems in the credit union industry, come up with solutions, create innovative end products and present them in a showcase at the annual Iowa Credit Union Convention.
Who can apply for IIG?
You can apply for IIG if you are an Iowa credit union employee who is interested in learning about and producing innovative credit union solutions while building personal growth and utilizing teamwork skills.
How much does it cost?
This program has no cost, it is a part of the Iowa Credit Union League's educational offerings through your credit union's dues based services.
