Senate Confirms Harper to Full Term on the NCUA Board

June 8, 2022 – The U.S. Senate voted to confirm Todd M. Harper’s reappointment to the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Board until April 10, 2027.

Before joining the NCUA Board, Mr. Harper served as director of the agency’s Office of Public and Congressional Affairs and chief policy advisor to former Chairmen Debbie Matz and Rick Metsger. He is the first member of the NCUA’s staff to become an NCUA Board Member and Chairman.

“On behalf of the National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors (NASCUS) and its stakeholders, I would like to congratulate Chairman Todd Harper on his full-term confirmation to the NCUA Board,” commented NASCUS President & CEO Brian Knight. “We look forward to furthering our productive discussions on the many issues facing the credit union system with Chairman Harper, Vice-Chair Hauptman, and Board Member Hood. We appreciate their continued positive dialogue with state regulators to find solutions that benefit both state and federal charters.”

As NCUA Board Chairman, Mr. Harper serves as a voting member of the Financial Stability Oversight Council and represents the NCUA on the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council and the Financial and Banking Information Infrastructure Committee.

“In the years ahead, my focus will remain on credit union members, the system’s resiliency and strength, and the NCUA’s readiness to respond to an evolving economic environment, credit union system, and financial services marketplace. Consistent with the law, I will also continue prioritizing capital and liquidity, cybersecurity, consumer financial protection, and diversity, equity, and inclusion,” stated Harper.

During his tenure as staff and legislative director with the U.S. House of Representatives, he contributed to impactful financial services reforms, from the enactment of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Financial Services Modernization Act in 1999 through the passage of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act in 2010.

“It is an honor to continue working with my fellow NCUA Board members — Kyle Hauptman and Rodney Hood — and the dedicated team of professionals at the NCUA,” added Chairman Harper.
