Newly appointed NCUA board member Todd Harper visited CUNA offices in Washington, D.C. to discuss credit union issues and priorities.
Harper met with CUNA Chief Advocacy Officer Ryan Donovan, Deputy Chief Advocacy Officer, Senior Counsel Elizabeth Eurgubian, and Senior Director of Advocacy and Counsel Lance Noggle.
This meeting came on the day the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld almost all portions of the NCUA’s Field of Membership rule, which had been challenged by American Bankers Association. CUNA has fiercely supported NCUA’s rule and the agency’s efforts to defend it in court. CUNA joined CUNA Mutual Group and the National Association of Federally Insured Credit Unions to file a brief in support of the agency in December.
NCUA Chairman Rodney Hood and Todd Harper have both now visited CUNA offices in Washington, D.C. and Harper toured the Madison, Wis. campus in June.
