The Senate yesterday approved the nominations of Rodney Hood and Todd Harper to serve on the NCUA Board; they were cleared by voice vote.

"NAFCU congratulates Rodney Hood and Todd Harper on being confirmed to the NCUA Board,” said NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger. "Both possess a strong understanding of the industry, and with Chairman Mark McWatters, we are confident the board will continue to be a strong, independent regulator for credit unions."

Hood previously served on the board from 2005-2010 and will fill a six-year term that will expire in 2023. This seat will replace Board Member Rick Metsger, whose term expired in August 2017 but had indicated he would serve until his replacement had been confirmed.

Harper previously served as the director of public and congressional affairs and chief policy advisor to the chairman at the NCUA. He will fill a six-year term that expires in 2021; Harper will fill a board seat previously held by former NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz, who left the board in April 2016.
