The federal regulator of credit unions on Tuesday published its 2021 open board meeting schedule, with the first meeting of the year set for Jan. 14, which could be the last board meeting over which Rodney Hood presides as chairman.
That would be in the event that President Joe Biden – who is set to be inaugurated Jan. 20 – decides to name the sole Democrat on the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Board, Todd Harper, to the chairmanship post.
The NCUA Board typically holds 11 open meetings a year. It usually skips August, and it has typically held those meetings on the third Thursday of the month. In keeping with the former, there is no meeting slated for August 2021, but the third-Thursday tradition is being stretched (as it has been previously, from time to time) with the 2021 schedule.
Dates of the 2021 open board meetings are subject to change, but as of Tuesday, the schedule includes Jan. 14, Feb. 18, March 18, April 22, May 20, June 24, July 22, Sept. 23, Oct. 21, Nov. 18, and Dec. 16.
The January meeting date falls on the second Thursday of the month; falling on the fourth Thursday of the month are the April, June, July, and September meeting dates.
The NCUA’s 2021 open board meetings are scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. ET. The NCUA has been holding these meetings online only for the past several months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
