Common Cents Podcast: Why Credit Unions Need to Have Disaster Preparedness and Recovery Plans

Commons Cents, the League of Southeastern Credit Unions & Affiliates (LSCU & Affiliates) Podcast, is back with another episode. In this month’s edition, LSCU Host Mike Miller sits down with Bill Berg, the Vice President of Compliance Training and Information for the League. The two talk about disaster preparedness and recovery, and 2022 Hurricane Season and what credit unions need to be doing right now, as major storms are expected to develop in the Atlantic Ocean throughout the rest of Summer and into Fall.

Bill has worked for LSCU & Affiliates for more than 30 years and has been through many storms and disasters that have affected credit unions. Throughout his career, Bill helped develop tools and resources to ensure credit unions are prepared and help them recover if a disaster strikes. Bill discusses his “top tips” for credit unions and what he’s learned about disaster recovery from personal, hands-on experience.
