Maine league H1N1pandemic webinar sets record
WESTBROOK, Maine (11/3/09)--More than 200 individuals participated in a recent Maine Credit Union League webinar last week about the H1N1 virus and pandemic planning. The 90-minute free presentation were offered to Maine’s 67 credit unions. The webinar covered H1N1 and seasonal flus in Maine, recommendations on preventing the flu, preparing for its potential impact on staff, tips for communicating information with internal and external audiences, and legal and human resource procedures and policies that credit unions should follow with staff and members. Presenting information during the webinar was Fran Simmler, business continuity planning coordinator for Synergent and the Maine league; league Jon Paradise, governmental and public affairs manager; and Robert Bower Jr., attorney with Norman, Hanson and DeTroy. After the webinar, the league unveiled a new page on its website to help credit unions with pandemic planning. The page includes a Pandemic Plan template, checklist, communications templates, a PowerPoint presentation from the webinar, and links to other resources. “One of our roles is to serve as a resource for our member credit unions and this was an opportunity to try and help provide some answers to the many questions credit unions have about this issue,” said John Murphy, league/president CEO.
