SBA, Agility partner to offer July 8 'preparedness' webinar
WASHINGTON (6/20/14)--As part of its ongoing PrepareMyBusiness campaign, the U.S. Small Business Administration is again partnering with Agility Recovery to present an online discussion of how businesses can prepare to blunt the impact of a disaster before it strikes.     

The SBA cites an "overwhelming" Red Cross statistic: 40% of businesses do not reopen after a disaster.  

On July 8, the SBA and Agility will offer a free disaster-preparedness webinar entitled, "The Top 5 Risks to Business in America." Space is limited. A presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session. (Use the resource link for registration information.)

The Credit Union National Association also offers comprehensive disaster preparedness materials, including a checklist that asks credit unions if they have alternate plans to serve their members' needs if their conventional cash source is cut off, if they have the resources needed to keep their credit union open in the event of a power outage, and if they have the ability to deal with short-term relocation, if needed.

The CUNA disaster preparedness page also links to CUNA Strategic Services (CSS), which offers key products and services to assist credit unions in the event a disaster. SBA and CSS partner Agility Recovery provides disaster recovery services to credit unions across the country.
