Reconnect with us in Irvine, CA for big.bright.minds. 2021!

Be a big.bright.mind!

Filene's signature event – big.bright.minds. – is returning even bigger in 2021! We're extending the agenda so we can focus on what is most important to you and your members at this THREE day event. Big.bright.minds. is the culmination of all the best Filene has to offer and brings together a community of credit union leaders passionate about taking their credit unions forward.

At this three day event, you will:

  • Come face-to-face with the experts and thought leaders addressing 6 key challenge areas; Data Analytics, DEI, Financial Lives in Transition, Technology, Community Social Impact, and Innovation & Incubation.

  • Escape day-to-day thinking and engage with some of the leading minds in and outside the credit union industry to workshop real-time solutions.

  • Go back to your credit union brighter and ready to take action!


Filene is committed to providing a safe and comfortable return to in-person engagement that will reignite connections and spark new ones. In order to execute on this commitment, space will be limited so secure your seat today. 


Registration at Filene events is included with membership.
