NASCUS leader offers congratulations, thanks

(Jan. 29, 2021) On behalf of the state system, NASCUS President and CEO Lucy Ito congratulated new Chairman Harper, noting his experience with credit unions.

State regulators and credit unions recognize the breadth and depth of his knowledge of the consumer financial services market and his dedication to a robust dual chartering framework that ultimately benefits members of both state and federal credit unions,” Ito said in a press statement. “Working together, we hope to achieve our shared objectives of a safe, sound and strong credit union system that can innovate and grow in the interests of our members.”

The NASCUS leader also extended thanks to former Chairman Hood for working with the state system over the past two years. “We are especially grateful for his support of the 2019 Document of Cooperation between NCUA and NASCUS which provides a durable roadmap for federal-state partnership,” she said.

Finally, Ito said the state system looks forward to working with Vice Chairman Hauptman, who also serves as the NCUA Board liaison to NASCUS, “particularly as both NASCUS and the agency foster collaboration and alignment between state and federal regulators and the whole NCUA Board.”
