NCUA Board Member Rodney E. Hood Remarks at the National Council of Firefighters Credit Unions (NCOFCU)

NCUA Director addresses NCOFCU attendees in Fort Worth TX.

Thank you very much for the kind introduction. It’s a pleasure to join you today, and I’m especially delighted that conditions are so much improved that we’re able to gather in person. After what we’ve been through the last year and a half, I think we’re all ready for a gradual return to a more normal footing, even if we still have some way to go to reach that point.

I spend a lot of time studying what credit unions are doing, and one of the best parts of this job is that I’m regularly reminded of how powerful the credit union model can be for making a difference in our communities. This initiative is a true testament to the strength of that model. I certainly look forward to checking in on the progress of this program so we can see how it works – it looks like a promising experiment.
