Otsuka poised to participate in Jan. 18 NCUA Board meeting

The first 2024 open meeting of the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Board is expected to feature a full board complement, but this time with a new face.

Tanya Otsuka, sworn in this week to a full board term, is cleared to participate in the board’s open meeting Jan. 18. The agenda includes a briefing for the board on the agency’s 2024-2026 diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility strategic plan; and board consideration of the agency’s 2024 annual performance plan.

President Joe Biden’s (D) nomination of Otsuka, a Democrat, to succeed Rodney Hood, a Republican, on the NCUA Board was approved by the full Senate Dec. 20. She was sworn in to a term that continues through Aug. 2, 2029, by agency board Chairman Todd Harper this Monday in a private ceremony, the agency said. Her inclusion changes the balance in party affiliations of its members to two Democrats, including Harper, and one Republican, Vice Chairman Kyle Hauptman.

The Jan. 18 meeting will be viewable in person and via livestream over the agency’s YouTube channel.
