Disaster Recovery Conference - Ft. Lauderdale

Everyone in Alabama and Florida has been affected by “Mother Nature” in one way or another whether it has been directly or indirectly. For those of you directly affected, were you as prepared as you could have been? Were your plans in place? Did your emergency procedures run smoothly? From past experience we have learned that financial institutions can not only prepare for a disaster externally; they have to prepare internally as well. The safety of the physical building is important however it is the protection of what is housed internally that must be solid. Is your system backed up? Also, a plan of action for staff must be in place. For those of you that have not been directly affected, are you ready?

Attend this group-live conference to learn how to safe-guard your credit union and learn valuable tips on how to create a well-prepared disaster plan of action. Basic knowledge of credit union operations is assumed. No prerequisites or advanced preparation are required.

Who should attend? Presidents, CEOs, COOs, CFOs, Senior Operations Personnel and anyone else involved with developing and implementing the disaster preparedness plan of their credit union.

Conference participants can earn up to 7 CPE credits in Specialized Knowledge and Applications.
