Hood & Harper Confirmed by Senate to Serve on NCUA Board

The Senate Confirmed the nominations of Rodney Hood and Todd Harper for seats on the NCUA board. Hood replaces board member Rick Metsger, and Harper will take the seat of former chairwoman Debbie Matz. 

This is the first time the board has a full membership since former Chairwoman Debbie Matz resigned in April 2016. The third seat is currently held by Board Chairman J. Mark McWatters (a Republican), whose term ends in August of this year. The Federal Credit Union Act requires that “no more than two Board members can be from the same political party.” The Senate confirmed the nominees together by voice vote on Thursday. Hood’s term ends in August 2023, and Harper’s term ends in April 2021.
