I launched my Risk Management Learning Center (RMLC) roughly three months before terrorists attacked the
NYC World Trade
Center on September 11, 2001.
My goal; to
continue my passion for teaching Risk Management (RM).
My hope; to
keep in contact with the International cadre of Credit Union Risk Managers
I'd worked with over the years.
My strategy; to assemble field
tested RM professionals willing, able, and well positioned to share
their RM wisdom at the grassroots level of the private sector.
mission; to ensure every organization and common bond has at least
been exposed to minimum RM performance standards so they're ready to
roll during the next terrorist attack, pandemic, or natural

mantra; "Hand them a loaf of bread and you feed them for a day!
Teach them to plant wheat and you feed them for a life time!"
I've been blessed with a career
that allowed me in virtually every credit union back office in the U.S. and
across virtually every credit union', chapter', league', national and
WOCCU stage in the free world.
My 2011 mission includes launching the "Risk Management Learning
Center Graduate School." It will celebrate our first 10 years
with publications that summarize RM research and operations we used
to test public sector homeland security protocols.
While RM principles and methods have not changed, RM
policies, procedures, and emergency response protocols have changed
with each new terrorist attack and natural disaster.
My personal goal; to reconnect with credit union educators around
the world using both linked In and Facebook. With help from the next
generation, I hope to simplify my websites so they're more user
friendly. I also hope to launch subject specific Blogs and Podcasts.

A Reflection on the Past 10
As part of our
business continuity and management succession plans,
I've created a 12 person advisory board, and 5 member
executive team to oversee the RMLC. The advisory board
includes representatives for WOCCU, CUNA Inc, CUNA
Mutual, and The National Credit Union Administration.
Past Missions:Our mission
in 2007 is to create "public-to-private" partnerships in
the war against terrorism at all levels of the world
credit union movement and throughout US veteran'
organizations. Our RM Learning Center will offer both
basic and advanced training in Incident Command and
Control (ICS) for the private sector. The world credit
union movement, US veteran' organizations, and the
"faith-based" community will be used to form
"critical incident response teams" or CIRTs mission
ready to deploy as ICS coaches during a terrorist
attack, natural disaster, pandemic or large scale

My Risk Management' career started in
the 60's... as a charter member of
the University of Wisconsin Risk
Management and Insurance Society. I
graduated in '67 with a BBA in Risk Management and Insurance.
I enlisted in the Army... in
January 1968 and landed in Vietnam
November 10 the same year. After an extended tour of
duty in Vietnam I landed back in Madison in 1971 broke and looking
for a job.
was hired by CUNA Mutual and CUMIS
Insurance Society... in 1971
to manage U.S. credit union risks through CUNA and Affiliates and
international credit union risks through
formed World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU).
After 30 years... to the day,
retiring June 29, 2001 and formed Risk
Management 007 LLC the parent company of
my Risk Management Learning Center.
I'm... a "past" Chairman of ASIS
Chapter 067 and an ASIS
International Certified Protection Professional (CPP). I'm a
Certified Fraud Examiner, Licensed
Private Investigator, and graduate of a
number of Federal and State Homeland
Security training forums to include the
National Incident Management System and the
"Incident Command System (ICS)," CARVEL plus Shock, and
the all hazard

charter member of the Door County Community Credit Union now merged
with the Pioneer Credit Union and I'm a charter member of the University
of Wisconsin Risk Management Alumni Association.
This is a Risk
Management Research and Development site I originally
created to support educators in the credit union
movement. In 2006 I'll be launching a sister site
at COPs007.com which will act as a "Community
Outreach Program" site. Our plan is to take the complex
RM research done at our learning center and translate it
into "user friendly" and entertaining RM presentations
for community leaders, business associations, social
groups, veteran's organizations, schools, churches, etc.
Our RMLC faculty and faculty mentors come from all walks
of life but primarily they represent law enforcement,
private security, emergency governments, security
manufacturers, and corporate Risk Management
created the Risk Management Learning Center so that I might
continue my 30 year career of teaching Credit Union Risk
Management to the world credit union movement. You see, my
career began with CUNA Inc. in 1971 when I was hired to
organize credit unions and train their officials and staff
how to manage risk created by a financial institution. The
World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) had just been formed
so my services soon included working with credit union
cooperatives around the world. In 1976 CUNA Mutual and CUMIS
Insurance Society funded an expansion of RM services and I
moved to New York to manage RM programs in the northeastern
United States. In 1980 I moved back to Madison and became
Manager of Risk Management Special Services which included
efforts to design and develop Risk Management programs
throughout the International Credit Union movement. I
retired in June 2001, crashed my Harley and while
recuperating wrote and past the exams for my Private
Detective license and Homeland Security certifications. I
than set out to benchmark and redesign RM programs in
Jamaica, Great Britain, South Korea, Puerto Rico, Ireland,
and Rwanda. Risk Management 007 LLC was formed as the parent
company for the Risk Management Learning Center and our soon
to be implemented community outreach site. Currently I'm
redesigning the Virtual Incident Command System we
inaugurated when Hurricane Ivan threatened Jamaica.
Our RMLC Mission

Management policies, procedures and practices and to

"About Us" is...
The Risk Management Learning
Center was born the day terrorist attacked innocent men, women and
children at the World Trade Center, September 11, 2001. Our RM
center is staffed by a cadre of professionally trained and
"street smart" risk managers focused on life threatening risks such
as natural disasters i.e.: hurricanes, tornados, floods,
earthquakes, etc. and terrorist attacks, armed robberies, home
invasions, kidnappings, homicides, extortions, and gang warfare.
Some research is focused on funding of organized crime and terrorist
activity which includes money laundering, drug trafficking, forgery,
fraud, embezzlement, and scams.
Risk Management 007 LLC is
the parent company while our sister site, COPs007.com, offers
Community Outreach Programs via the Internet along with our Virtual
Incident Command System (V-ICS) offered as a no cost tutorial.
RMLC faculty are mentored by
over 500 frontline Risk Managers from the public and private sector
representing major industries and most counties and cultures.
Mentors monitor RMLC research and white papers and offer their
candid opinions and comments to ensure our RM methods and
conclusions will work on the street and in the "real world."
RMLC faculty are all
independent business men and women who benefit from the RMLC as a
point of contact with their clients and customers. Many faculty seek
new clientele and teaching opportunities while others are content to
stay close to home and spend time with grandchildren and on
retirement hobbies. All faculty benefit from keeping in touch with
our global cadre of professional Risk Managers. All are willing to
share their RM wisdom, access to personal research files, and their
white papers documenting years of experience fighting crime on the
Our "Community Outreach
