President Trump has nominated Todd Harper for the NCUA Board

President Trump has nominated Todd M. Harper to serve on the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) board.  

According to CUNA News, Harper’s nomination would fill the third seat on the NCUA board, left vacant since former Chair Debbie Matz retired in April 2016. His term would expire April 10, 2021. Trump nominated Rodney Hood to fill the seat currently occupied by board member Rick Metsger, whose term expired in August 2017. Hood was also nominated in the last Congress but did not receive a confirmation hearing. The five-year term of board chair Mark McWatters is scheduled to expire in August 2019.

"We welcome the nomination of Todd Harper to the NCUA board," said California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues President and CEO Diana Dykstra. "His industry experience and knowledge of the NCUA is most helpful as the board navigates new regulations and examinations processes in the changing financial services marketplace."

From 2011 through 2017, Harper directed the NCUA’s Office of Public and Congressional Affairs and served as the chief policy officer to the board chairman. Prior to that, he served as staff director of the House Capital Markets, Insurance and Government Sponsored Enterprises. He worked on Dodd-Frank following the financial crisis and as legislative director for former Rep. Paul Kanjorski, D-PA.
