Rick Metsger, new Board Member for the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA)
NEW NCUA BOARD MEMBER SWORN IN
updated 08/15/13 02:40 PM
Metsger's Nomination Widely Supported
The National Credit Union Administration's new board member, the honorable Richard T. "Rick" Metsger, was sworn in Aug. 23. He replaces former Board Member Gigi Hyland, who left the agency in October 2012.

Metsger’s experience includes serving as Oregon state senator from 1999-2011, where he chaired the Oregon Senate committee that heard all financial institution legislation. He was a member of the board of directors at Portland Teachers CU from 1993-2001, and he has also been a board member of Financial Beginnings, a nonprofit focused on increasing students' financial literacy.

In June, Metsger remarked before the Senate Banking Committee that he will focus on "updating, simplifying, eliminating and clarifying existing rules to ensure that they are effective, but not excessive, consistent with safety and soundness."

Metsger also said the following regarding protecting the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF): "Because the fund is capitalized by member credit unions themselves, it is in the best interest of member credit unions to have a strong, forward-looking regulator, committed to protecting the fund from losses."

Sharon Lindeman, vice president of regulatory advocacy for the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues, said, “Metsger’s nomination was widely supported, partly based on his experience as a credit union board member. We look forward to working with him on future rulemakings and supervision issues."
