News Release: 2012 igniters selected in Indiana

Friday, January 20, 2012
Seven Indiana credit union representatives have been selected to be part of ignite, an initiative of the Indiana Credit Union League that is focused on developing innovations that can help credit unions better the financial lives of their members.
“We are celebrating the fifth anniversary of ignite this year,” said League Director Doug True, FORUM CU who is a member of the three-member ignite Leadership Team along with Bob Falk, Purdue FCU and Nan Morrow, Centra CU. “We’re proud of the track record of collaboration being developed by these talented leaders,” he said.
“Under the direction of our Leadership Team, the ignite initiative has thrived in Indiana,” said League President John McKenzie. “The credit union support has been tremendous, as many have shared very talented and innovative employees.”
At the group’s meeting later this month, the igniters will be organized into small working groups, and they will begin developing their 2012 innovations. Sixteen innovations have been developed to date. Several ignite innovations have been adopted by credit unions in Indiana and elsewhere. To promote them, members of the working groups make presentations during the League Convention and at several chapter meetings around the state. A list of innovations is available on the League Web site at, and there is an ignite Facebook page as well.
