Through the 70's I organized credit unions, teaching Risk Management through CUNA and Affiliates.
Through the 80's and 90's I promoted International Risk
Management principles and practices through CUNA Mutual Group's U.S.
and International Risk Management Departments.
After retiring from CMG in 2001 I formed The Risk Management
Learning Center to continue promoting Risk Management launched
research projects in 2001 to adopt 30 years of Credit Union Risk
Management to the teach "Private Sector" Incident Command
and Control System (ICS) focusing on a global response
to earthquakes, wildfires, floods, hurricanes, and tsunamis.
Since the terrorist attacks of 9-11-01 and Hurricane Katrina I've
launched a project to teach our Private Sector ICS and CARVER plus Shock
Risk Management protocols to veterans through our community outreach
During 2009, I'll be working
with fellow University of Wisconsin to form the UW School of
Business Risk Management and Insurance Alumni Association.
During 2009 I will continue to
train an international cadre of Credit Union Risk Managers
through credit union chapters, leagues, the World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) and
CUNA Mutual Group (CMG). I will make many of our R&D files
through the local CMG, League, or WOCCU representatives. Most
workshop handouts can be downloaded from our RMLC annual summaries:

I'm known for my dedication to the world
credit union movement, passion for Risk Management, and commitment
to form "Private Sector" unified commands and mobilize my fellow
veterans during any crisis that overwhelms or exhausts public
sector's first responders.

Mission Focus 2009: We will continue to
Operational Risk Management training through the world credit
union movement and CUNA Mutual Group. We'll continue to focus on
fidelity bond risks (Burglary, Robbery, Forgery, Fraud,
Embezzlement, Liability, Bomb Threats and Terrorist
Attacks, etc.) as well as contingency and business continuity
planning for natural disasters and pandemics. Based on our
benchmarking of International Risk Management methods and best
practices we'll be offering Risk Management basic training in
Incident Command and Control and CARVER plus Shock Risk
Management protocols for the private sector.

to go through your education directors at your chapter, league,
and national association level for access to our
Management Performance Standards: Since taking
my 30 year retirement from CUNA Mutual on June 29, 2001, we've
continued to build a network of International Credit Union Risk
Managers (I-CURMs) linking CURMs at CMG' headquarters in Madison
Wisconsin through CURMs at the CMG district and regional levels
to CURMs embedded on the front lines at each of their bond
holders. This positions the world credit union movement better
than any other organization, anywhere in the world, anytime in
history to respond to any community crisis no matter the type,
scope, potential for scope creep, or duration. In 2008 we laid
the ground work to mobilize the private sector during any large
scale community crisis using the world credit union movement to
stabilize and rebuild the economic infra structure and veterans
to establish and maintain command and control during the crisis.
Through our RMLC outreach sites at
and www.COPs007.com we're
going to deliver internet based training in Operational Risk
Management, a "Private Sector" version of the Incident Command
System, as well as training in CARVER plus Shock as the private
sector protocol for conducting regional and community threat

Posted Notes from the CEO:
Click here for an introduction to Crisis
Management and Public-to-Private Partnerships! Rich Woldt
We've learned much
from our surveys of "Best Practices" during hurricanes,
wildfires, earthquakes, pandemics, terrorist attacks, and
pandemics. But our best lessons have come from actually
setting up a "Private Sector" Emergency Operation Center,
field testing our "Private Sector Staging Areas" and running
field tests of our "Private Sector Critical Incident
Response Team (CIRT)" protocols.
Note: I emphasis "Private Sector" because
while we adopt the same Risk Management Systems used by the
"Public Sector," we by design assume all public sector
emergency government, law enforcement, and fire fighter
personnel are more than adequately equipped and trained to
be first on the scene and meet all victim needs throughout
the duration of the community crisis.
Our private sector
strategic action plan is based on the reality that at some
point the scope of the crisis will overwhelm or the duration
will exhaust even the best equipped and trained public
sector agency. Our stated goal is to plan for and prepare
the private sector so they will be mission ready to
seamlessly merger their response and recovery assets into
any crisis situation that overwhelms or exhausts public
sector first responders.
emphasis to everyone visiting our Risk Management web sites
that they should first take full advantage of the
training and resources offered by their public sector
professionals and credit union associations. Directors of
emergency governments and training directors from local
police and fire authorities should be invited to all of our
Homeland Security/Risk Management workshops conducted in
