Are You Prepared If Disaster Strikes Your Credit Union?
Wednesday, February 28, 2018 6:35 AM

The time to prepare for disasters is far before the disaster happens. Disasters come in all forms, including robberies, fires, terrorism, hurricanes, and tornadoes. That's why Cornerstone is partnering with the League of Southern Credit Unions and Affiliates (LSCU) to promote the Disaster Preparedness Conference.

The Disaster Preparedness Conference takes place April 4-5 at the Castle Hotel in Orlando, Fla. Room rates will be discounted to $145 through March 5. Space is limited, so register now. 

This informative event is designed to provide attendees with a variety of resources all in one venue. Expect discussions on ways to establish, update, and execute a robust continuity plan, including best practices in preparing for hurricanes, robberies, fire, flood, and terrorism.

Hear from Rob Burton, a principal at PreparedEx, with more than 20 years of experience preparing for and responding to crises. His leadership role involves assisting clients in designing, implementing, and evaluating crisis, emergency, security, and business continuity management programs.

An active shooter workshop will be led by Chad Wilbur, who has over 30 years of experience in defensive tactics. Each attendee will learn situational awareness and the four essential elements of G.E.A.R. for surviving an active shooter situation.

Additional speakers include credit union CEOs who have witnessed first-hand the results of tragedies, including John Hirabayashi, CEO of Community First CU in Jacksonville, FL; Erik Shaw, CEO of FivePoint CU in Texas; and Terry Phelps, SVP, management information systems of Local Government FCU in North Carolina. 

This event, which is open to credit unions from 13 southeastern states (Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Kentucky, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia) will help participants identify key strategies, products, and services needed to ensure continued business operations and prepare for any type of disaster.

Don’t miss this opportunity to evaluate, improve, and update your existing business continuity plan. Register now.
