Harper, who is currently serving as Chairman, was already nominated by Biden for a longer term ending in 2027, however the nomination awaits confirmation by the Senate.

Harper Official 280x210Harper’s name had already been submitted last August but was resubmitted as part of 90 nominations that were recenty sent to the Senate by the White House. One reason suggested for the nomination being resubmitted was that at least one senator objected to allowing previous nominations to roll over into the second session of Congress.

Harper, a Democrat, was designated chairman of the NCUA by President Biden in January of 2021, succeeding Republican Rodney Hood, who had been designated chairman by President Trump.

Last August, President Biden nominated Harper to the six-year term that ends in 2027. Harper is currently serving in a holdover capacity as the term he was serving ended in April. His nomination still awaits a vote by the Senate Banking Committee before advancing for consideration by the full Senate.

If confirmed, Harper would hold the longest tenure of the three current members of the NCUA Board: now-Member Hood’s term ends in August 2023 and Vice Chairman Kyle Hauptman’s term ends in August 2025.
