On Feb. 1, President Donald J. Trump announced his intent to nominate Todd M. Harper of Virginia to be a member of the National Credit Union Administration Board for the remainder of a six-year term, expiring April 10, 2021.

Harper has specialized in financial services policy during his nearly 25 years of government service.  From 2011 to 2017, he led the Office of Public and Congressional Affairs and served as the chief policy advisor to the chairman of the National Credit Union Administration.

Previously, as staff director for the Subcommittee on Capital Markets, Insurance, and Government Sponsored Enterprises in the U.S. House of Representatives, Harper contributed to the efforts after the financial crisis to enact the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.  As legislative director to former Congressman Paul E. Kanjorski of Pennsylvania, he also worked on bipartisan legislation concerning credit union capital rules, terrorism risk insurance, auditing standards, and subprime mortgage lending.

Harper earned an M.P.P. from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a B.S. with high distinction in business analysis from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business.
