President Donald J. Trump nominated Rodney E. Hood for the NCUA Board in January 2019 with the U.S. Senate confirming him in March 2019 and he was sworn in as the eleventh NCUA Chairman on April 8, 2019 – serving in that position for almost two years.
Mr. Hood first service to the board was after he was nominated to the NCUA Board by former President George W. Bush- serving from November 2005 until August 2009. He was appointed Vice Chairman, and he served as the NCUA’s representative on the Board of Directors of NeighborWorks America. And Board Member Hood continues to hold a seat with the NCUA Board today.
Board Member Hood joins LSCU President Jared Ross to share his perspective of the credit union industry during a massive pandemic. From the LSCU perspective, as a league, we saw a huge pivot by credit unions in the southeast and credit unions stepping up to lead the way and help.
President Ross and Board Member Hood also discuss the 2021 NCUA supervisory priorities and innovation & fintech in the credit union system.
