As the nation’s premier payments CUSO, PSCU proudly supports the success of more than 1,500 credit unions.Navigating a major crisis can be difficult, especially when it has the potential to affect both your member’s personal and financial health. On this week’s episode, I sat down with Lisa Brown, President and CEO of Tallahassee-Leon Federal Credit Union, to learn more about how her team is rethinking member service in the face of this crisis, applying lessons learned from the last recession, and working directly with members to develop a business strategy for the next 12 – 18 months. During our discussion, Lisa talk about how her team was able to open a branch in just five days to provide drive-thru service to at-risk members in a nearby community, while also managing the stress of implementing an emergency pandemic plan. With that in mind, she also shared some of the internal mantras she uses to stay focused and make hard decisions. On her toughest days, she often likes to remind herself that “this is what separates the men from the boys.”  Additionally, Lisa and I discuss her hopes for a healthy future, overcoming the struggles of being a type A personality, and what she believes all good leaders need to learn to be successful. We also talk about her new found appreciation for free time and what she’s doing to fill that time, which may include some chickens in the near future. We wrap up our conversation with the rapid-fire portion of the episode, where we learn a little more about Lisa’s busy life outside of credit unions, her daily routines, and her definition of success. You can feel Lisa’s passion for credit unions, her community, and her family throughout the entire episode.

Ernst says physical barrier not needed along some areas of border

first_imgWASHINGTON — Republican Senator Joni Ernst says now that there’s divided government in Washington, it’s up to President Trump and Democratic congressional leaders to find a border security solution that ends the partial government shutdown.“I would tend to agree that not all areas of our border needs a physical barrier if those are adequately patrolled by Border Patrol agents, if we have the technology to monitor those areas without having a physical barrier and can adequately respond in a timely manner to illegal border crossings,” Ernst said Thursday during a conference call with Iowa reporters.But Ernst indicated some areas of the border can only be secured with “a barrier of some form.” She said capturing terrorists, drug smugglers, gun runners and human traffickers along the border is a national security priority.“And by having a physical barrier in some of those places, we can shape the way the traffic is flowing, the foot traffic,” she told reporters.Ernst said she learned in the military that barriers on a battlefield funnel people into areas where they can be apprehended. Ernst indicated she would not support a deal that only funds more agents and more surveillance along the border, because a wall or fencing is necessary in some areas. The “smartest way to move,” according to Ernst, is to have Border Patrol agents and the Department of Homeland Security map things out.“I do think it needs to be a comprehensive plan that allows us to make smart choices on how we spend our dollars on the border,” Ernst said.About 25 percent of the federal government has been shut down since December 22nd. President Trump has repeatedly said he will not agree to reopen the government until congress approves $5.7 billion for a border wall.last_img read more
