ORLANDO, Fla. – As Alberto teetered between a tropical storm and hurricane heading toward Florida last week during CUNA’s Future Forum, three credit unions that survived Katrina last year said their new plans were already put into effect. The breakout session was eerily timely as attendees monitored tropical storm Alberto and talk of the hurricane season being kicked off dominated. The credit unions had similar policies of once the storm is named, the first steps of their action plans were taken. Remembering that everyone was in the same boat was important during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina last year, Singing River Federal Credit Union Senior Vice President for Operations Tim McLeod emphasized.
