Council white paper offers disaster prep planning advice
MADISON, Wis. (11/21/07)--A new white paper from the CUNA Marketing and Business Development Council provides the steps and strategies of building a credit union disaster communications plan. “Disaster Communications: The Importance of and Strategies for Implementing a Disaster Communications Plan--Before You Need It” discusses the importance of and strategies for implementing, testing and improving the communications portion of disaster preparedness and recovery plans, and business continuity plans. The paper covers:
* Disaster recovery plans--when they are needed, what is included in them and how they incorporate communications; * The important elements of a disaster communications plan; * Available tools and resources within the credit union system to help with planning and with communications during disasters; and * Implementing, testing and updating a plan.
Five case studies in the paper illustrate how credit unions and leagues have weathered disasters, the lessons they learned and the improvements they made to their disaster communications plans. A questionnaire for plan evaluation and a planning checklist are included in the appendix. CUNA Council members are entitled to a complimentary copy of the white paper; non-members may purchase copies for $50 each. For more information, use the link.
