Plus, your plan will include access to more than 75 different types of news release statements, all automated and delivered through SituationHub.com.

For more than 20 years we’ve been the crisis communications plan expert for co-ops. And now, we’ve partnered with SituationHub.com to automate many of your crisis communications tasks. SituationHub.com can even write a perfect news release statement for your members, your employees, the media, and other key stakeholders.

Why Do You Need a Crisis Communications Plan for Your Cooperative?

Your members, employees, and the media need to hear from you quickly when a situation arises that could escalate to a crisis. Furthermore, with the proliferation of social media, your members or employees may turn a small issue into a crisis with their comments on social media.

When your cooperative fails to issue a statement within one hour or less of the onset of a crisis, others will set the narrative. Your cooperative will lose credibility. Your cooperative will experience damage to both reputation and revenue.

Numerous case studies show how entire boards were voted out and how GMs were fired because they failed to address a variety of crises. How do you prevent this? You use your crisis communications plan and your library of pre-written news releases.
