Environmental risks, which could include derailed or overturned chemical tankers,blizzards, hurricanes, tornados, sink holes (save the Corvettes!), earthquakes, mudslides, forest fires. Leaders always need to be asking themselves, "What could stop us from performing our mission?"

This is such a great example of credit unions giving back. The key with Complex Community is that they don't just do these acts of kindness just to do them.
