Credit unions connect with NCUA Chairman during Hike the Hill

Optimal regulation occurs when regulators and regulated organizations collaborate on safety, soundness, and consumer protection priorities without negatively impacting operational viability. Almost 40 Ohio credit union leaders traveled to the NCUA headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia, last week to meet with NCUA Board Chairman Todd Harper during the 2023 Hike the Hill. They discussed how current and proposed rulemaking could impact how credit unions meet member needs and the credit union model itself. Ohio’s credit union leaders zealously advocated for expanded access to capital, the need for NCUA fee methodology reform, any third-party vendor authority be narrowly tailored to safety and soundness, and consideration of the disproportionate impact one-size-fits-all rulemaking has on member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperatives and their ability to serve Ohioans.
