Posted Notes from the CEO: "CUNA Mutual Risk Management personnel continue to lead the way to safe havens. Click here to read articles by Ann "my favorite plastic card cop" Davidson, Tom Southern, Jeff Davis, Ken Otsuka, and other Risk Management  professionals. Way to go CUNA Mutual! If you're wondering where to go for frontline RM information, contact any one of my old team mates out there somewhere in credit union land.  Watch for them at CUNA Management Schools this summer.           Rich Woldt

Posted Notes from the CEO: I created the Risk Management Learning Center to help Credit Union Risk Managers (CURMs) and League Education Directors monitor the latest and greatest RM methods used by financial institutions around the world. I created the Community Center to share what we learned at the RMLC with community leaders. Both sites are designed to provide support for law enforcement, fire fighters, first responders and emergency government personnel during a large scale disaster or terrorist attack.

Quotes from the front lines...

"Risk taking should be fun! Refusing to take risks is like owning a boat and refusing to leave the dock! Poorly trained Risk Managers are a liability, fire them first! If you can't avoid the risk reduce it! If you can't reduce it transfer it to someone else! Some of your best risk controls are free! There are no silver bullets! No one has all the right answers! When you lose touch with the frontlines you lose touch with reality! 

I learned much growing up on the farm. For example...  "When you hand someone a loaf of bread you feed them for a day; when you teach them to plant wheat you feed them for a lifetime!" 

Thank you for stopping in our lobby.

More quotes from the front lines...

"Risk Management "best practices" come from experienced front line employees. If you're working 24/7 and refuse to take an extended vacation, you need to be watched! Neighbors will be first to pull you from your pool and first to sue when they fall in! We learn more when we study together. We make progress when we work together. We move more effectively when we march together, and we recover faster when we follow Incident Command!"

Based on these universal truths....

I've  launched to translate RMLC research into RM programs and protocols for community leaders. At we teach clubs, associations, church members, and community leaders how to prepare for, respond to, and recover from the next disaster or terrorist attack.

World Credit Union Conference in Dublin Ireland  July 27 -  30, 2006


Thank you credit unions for responding to the fire victims in Oklahoma and Colorado and now those buning in Florida and Kansas! I suggest you download all the tri-folds and discuss them at your next in-house staff training. Rich Woldt

Attention Volunteers who attended the 2006 Western States Volunteers Conference in Las Angeles. Within two weeks of your conference Oklahoma, Colorado, Florida, and Kansas all experienced major wildfires that resulted in mass evacuations.  What you all did to channel victim assistance and support to first responders was commendable. If you've not already downloaded your handouts or shared the fire fighting and mass evacuations instructions with your credit union members, please do so ASAP!  Rich Woldt

ALSO! Feedback in the form of an incident report covering what you did, how you did it, and what you recommend be done next time is very much appreciated and will be posted as a "white paper" for others to read. One or two pages written from the heart is best. I'll simply convert your word document to a pdf file and post it. If you don't want your name or credit union's name posted, use a pen name and write it from the perspective of your job. For example, if your the CEO, internal auditor, security officer, board member, etc. let the reader know that!   Rich Woldt

Please go to: Follow-up Support  The fires are out but I'll leave the following links posted for the next victims!

“Oklahoma, Colorado, Florida, and Kansas Credit Unions please forward the instructions for "Fire Fighting and Mass Evacuations", 1st Responders, Evacuees, and Victim' Response Instructions to your credit unions in harms way! Download Power Point for Training! Rich Woldt

U of Wisconsin Risk Management & Insurance Society Presentation Session Summary & Handouts
Business Recovery Association of Wisconsin (BRAW) - Meeting on Pandemic Risks conducted by Paul at American Family White Paper - Paul Bergee

Stop! Before you enter, I must be honest. In 42 years teaching Risk Management  I've learned your first source of Risk Management wisdom should comes from your professional trade associations. By definition, they know your goals, understand your objectives, and are most familiar with the rules and the regulations that govern your decisions. Most important, they are in touch with others who face the same Risk Management challenges. You see, I've also learned there are no silver bullets, no one person or company has all the right answers, and when disasters strike it's a family, your neighbor, or your competitor who'll be first on the scene to offer a helping hand. I recommend you build your Risk Management program on these simple truths, now click here for an introduction to our mentors, click here meet our faculty, click here to conduct your own research, and click here to consider our workshops.
