Chairman McWatters Welcomes New Members

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (March 14, 2019) – The U.S. Senate today confirmed Rodney Hood and Todd Harper as National Credit Union Administration Board Members.

“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. Rodney Hood will replace Board Member Rick Metsger, whose term expired in August 2017. His term will run until August 2023. Todd 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 Rodney Hood on January 19 and announced his intent to nominate Todd Harper on February 1. The Senate Banking Committee held its confirmation hearing February 14 and unanimously approved both nominees on February 26.
