Harper to outline priorities in Feb. 11 webinar

(Feb. 5, 2021) The new chairman of the NCUA Board will discuss his priorities for the agency and the credit unions it supervises during a 90-minute webinar set for next week, the agency said this week.

Chairman Todd Harper will host the webinar Feb. 11 at 2 p.m. ET, the agency said in a release. During the event, Harper is also anticipated to address the agency’s supervisory activities and recently issued guidance and regulations.

The webinar is open to the public and there is no charge, although advance registration is required.

“Open communication with stakeholders aids the NCUA in achieving its safety and soundness mission and consumer financial protection oversight responsibilities. Such interactions also assist the agency in developing effective and efficient regulations,” Harper said in a statement in this week’s announcement. “I look forward to participating in this webinar and sharing my regulatory philosophy and other thoughts about our priorities and programs with stakeholders.”

Harper was named chairman of the three-member board by President Joe Biden Jan. 25, succeeding Rodney Hood in the position. Harper will chair his first meeting of the board one week after the Feb. 11 webinar. The Feb. 18 meeting is set for 10 a.m. ET.
