President Biden on Friday announced his intention to nominate National Credit Union Administration Chairman Todd Harper to serve a full term on the agency board.

Harper, a Democrat, has served as chairman of the agency board since January. He was nominated in 2019 to complete the term of former NCUA board member Debbie Matz. Harper’s term ended in April, but he may continue to serve on the board even after that expiration unless the president asks him to step down or replaces him. Now, Biden has said he will nominate Harper for a full term.

Harper previously worked on Matz’s staff; he is the first NCUA staff member to serve on the agency board.

“If confirmed, I will continue to make credit union members, NCUA employees, and the strength of the credit union system my highest priorities,” Harper wrote, in an email to agency employees obtained by Washington Credit Union Daily.
