May 12, 2023 — The National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors (NASCUS) proudly announces that Regulator Board Vice Chair, Katie Averill, has been confirmed for a third consecutive term as Iowa’s Superintendent of Credit Unions with a unanimous vote of Senate approval.

Superintendent Averill’s confirmation was a resounding success. In Iowa, a two-thirds majority vote is required for confirmation. However, all 50 senators voted in favor of Averill’s reconfirmation, with none opposed.
