Rodney Hood Nominated for NCUA Board

President Trump has announced that he will nominate Rodney Hood to serve on the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) board, replacing the seat currently occupied by Rick Metsger whose term expired last August.

If approved by the U.S. Senate, Hood’s term would run through 2023. Hood previously served on the NCUA board from October 2005 to August 2010.

Two members of the board may belong to the president’s political party. Hood would join fellow Republican and NCUA Chair J. Mark McWatters, leaving an open seat for a Democrat on the three-member board.

Hood currently serves as a corporate responsibility manager for JP Morgan Chase & Co. where he manages national partnerships with organizations that serve community development, civil rights and the disability community.

“The MD|DC Credit Union Association looks forward to working with Mr. Hood and appreciates that he will be able to hit the ground running to address the important issues impacting credit unions,” said MD|DC Credit Union Association CEO/president John Bratsakis.
