The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues would like to congratulate National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Board Chairman Todd Harper on his reappointment to the NCUA Board. This week, the U.S. Senate confirmed Harper to a five-year term through 2027.

Harper joined the board in April 2019 under President Donald Trump and was named chairman in January 2021 by President Joe Biden.

The Leagues look forward to continuing to engage Harper and other NCUA board members to ensure the agency stays focused on its safety-and-soundness mission for all credit unions.

Prior to joining the NCUA Board, Harper served as director of the agency’s Office of Public and Congressional Affairs and chief policy advisor to former Chairs Debbie Matz and Rick Metsger. Harper also previously worked for the House as a subcommittee staff director and as legislative director and senior legislative assistant to former Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D-PA).

First NCUA Staff Member to Rise to the Board
The Senate confirmed Harper’s reappointment by a vote of 59 to 40, with his term expiring April 10, 2027. He is the first member of the NCUA’s staff to become an NCUA Board member and chairman.

“I am grateful to President Biden for nominating me to serve a full term on the NCUA’s Board and humbled by today’s bipartisan confirmation vote,” Harper said in a statement. “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.”

Harper was initially confirmed to fill a partial term on the NCUA Board by the Senate on March 14, 2019, filling the vacancy created when former NCUA Board Chair Debbie Matz retired in 2016. That term ended in April 2021.
