To wrap up International Credit Union Day, Alabama credit unions gathered in Montgomery to honor and celebrate the legacy of the 11th Chairman of the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) and current Board Member Rodney Hood. The group was delighted to be joined by the Office of U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville, whose team has been a tremendous advocate for the credit union industry.
Chairman Hood updated the group on the stability and healthy status of credit unions across the country. Under his leadership, credit unions have been effectively, not excessively, regulated. Thanks to Hood, the credit union industry has flourished through innovation and technology and has remained a beacon of hope and stability amid recent bank failures. Credit unions have been fortunate to have his leadership at the helm of the NCUA for nearly a decade, and we are most grateful for his service on behalf of our movement.
Coach Tuberville’s Tax Policy Advisor, Emory Cox, provided an update from Capitol Hill and shared a “Happy International Credit Union Day” video from Coach.
In addition to hosting our federal regulator and his Chief of Staff, Lenwood Brooks, Alabama credit unions were joined by Governor Kay Ivey and Alabama Credit Union Administrator Greg McClellan.
