Webinars for September--National Preparedness Month
MADISON, Wis. (8/15/12)--Agility Recovery and the U.S. Small Business Administration is hosting four free disaster recovery webinars in September. The September series is presented in collaboration with Federal Emergency Management Association's Ready Campaign, as part of National Preparedness Month. 

Agility Recovery is a CUNA Strategic Services Provider.

All webinars begin at 1 p.m. CT and last one hour.

Webinar dates and topics include:

  • Sept. 5--Ten Steps to Prepare Any Organization for Disaster. Credit unions can learn how to evacuate their locations within 15 minutes in the event of a disaster and continue serving their members. Agility Recovery President Bob Boyd will share the top 10 ways to prepare any organization for interruptions.
  • Sept. 12--Protect Your Organization by Preparing Your Employees. While data recovery and business continuity may form the backbone of a disaster recovery strategy, if employees are unable or unwilling to report to work, getting systems back on line may prove worthless. Dan Stoneking, director of private sector at FEMA, will provide strategies and best practices for helping employees prepare themselves and their families for a crisis.  
  • Sept. 19--Using Social Media during a Crisis. Recent disasters have seen an increased use of social media platforms to disseminate news about the disaster and to coordinate responses. Experts from the American Red Cross social media team will discuss the steps and best practices for developing a strategy for effectively using social media for crisis communications.
  • Sept. 26--Surviving a Crisis Large or Small--Real Life Lessons Learned. Regardless of the event, business owners are often faced with difficult decisions in the aftermath of interruptions caused by a disaster. In this session, speakers will recount their businesses' stories of recovery and the lessons learned. From fires to hurricanes, each type of crisis teaches different lessons.  A question-and-answer session will follow.
