Powell nominated for second term as Fed Chair
President Joe Biden Monday reappointed Jerome Powell for a second term as Chair of the Federal Reserve, head of the U.S. central bank. Powell currently serves in this capacity and was nominated by President Donald Trump in 2017 and confirmed in January of 2018. His nomination is subject to Senate confirmation.
Powell’s term as Chair was set to end in February; his term as a member of the Board of Governors will expire Jan. 31, 2028.
In addition, Biden nominated current Federal Reserve Board Governor Dr. Lael Brainard to serve as Vice Chair. Of note, Brainard has been a member of the Board of Governors since June of 2014.
“Fundamentally, if we want to continue to build on the economic success of this year we need stability and independence at the Federal Reserve – and I have full confidence after their trial by fire over the last 20 months that Chair Powell and Dr. Brainard will provide the strong leadership our country needs,” said Biden in a statement on the nominations.
NAFCU will continue to stay in close contact with the Federal Reserve to voice the impact of Fed actions on the credit union industry. The association’s annual meeting with Federal Reserve Board Governor Michelle Bowman – where the NAFCU Board will share the association's Annual Report on Credit Unions – is scheduled for Dec. 1.

[14:32] Taking on a 3(16) role is not only understanding the law, rules, and requirements but knowing what is in that specific plan document and then applying that to that client’s specific circumstance. [21:13] Determine if you want to retain all those functions, roles, and legal and financial responsibilities. Organizations big and small may be capable but it isn’t their day-to-day business so they don’t really want to focus on it and they want to outsource it. [22:56] So many times the new hires are not offered the opportunity timely. At the end of the day, if that error isn’t caught, that participant loses out on the ability to save money long-term for retirement. Web NAFCU firstname.lastname@example.org America/New_York public
