#1114: Callahan's and Innovations FCU Team Up to Share a Story on How to Serve in the Wake of a Major Natural Disaster...
I've always enjoyed Callahan & Associates' "Anatomy of a Credit Union" series. They're definitely good reads. One in particular stood out for me recently and that was the story about Innovations Federal Credit Union recovering from last year's devastating Hurricane Michael -- while serving its members and community at the same time. Amazing work from these folks.
To dig a bit deeper, we invited Callahan & Associates Associate Editor Erik Payne, who researched and authored the story, and Innovations Federal Credit Union CEO David Southall. What transpired was a terrific talk on how to serve in desperate times. What else transpired was Innovation's virtual overnight growth following the hurricane, growing its deposits from $200 million to more than $270 million. We discussed how this happened, as well.
Again, this is an amazing story from heroic folks serving their community in the wake of a massive natural disaster. Check it out and let us know your thoughts.
