Chairman McWatters Welcomes New Members Hood and Harper
The U.S. Senate confirmed Rodney Hood and Todd Harper as National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Board Members, rounding out a complete board for the first time since 2016.
Hood and Harper both have extensive background and experience with the NCUA and the Michigan Credit Union League looks forward to building new relationships with them.
“I congratulate Rodney Hood and Todd Harper, and I look forward to working with both of them in a collegial, bipartisan manner,” NCUA Board Chairman J. Mark McWatters said. “In that same spirit, I would like to thank Board Member Rick Metsger for his more than five years of service to the agency and for creating a true collaborative partnership that benefited the agency and the credit union community.”
Both new board members will begin their terms after they are sworn into office. Hood will replace Metsger, whose term expired in August 2017. His term will run until August 2023. Harper fills the vacancy created when former Chairman Debbie Matz retired in 2016. His term will end in April 2021.
President Donald J. Trump nominated Hood on Jan. 19 and announced his intent to nominate Harper on Feb. 1. The Senate Banking Committee held its confirmation hearing Feb. 14 and unanimously approved both nominees on Feb. 26.
