    Our Speaker for May will be Brandi McKinney from Alabama Credit Union and she will present- When Disaster Strikes:  HR Leadership in Times of Crisis

    On January 10, 2017, eleven team members at Alabama Credit Union were held hostage for three hours in a senseless robbery.  Brandi McKinney will discuss the security and disaster planning tools that HR professionals need to be able to weather similar security situations, including tips for what to do during such a crisis and afterwards.
