President Obama announced his intent to nominate former Oregon Senator Rick Metsger to the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Board last week.

Metsger has a long history of supporting credit union legislation, and in 2009, the Credit Union Association of Oregon named him the “Legislator of the Decade” at their annual meeting.

NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz and Board Member Michael E. Fryzel both issued statements welcoming President Obama’s nomination.

“Serving on the NCUA Board is a tremendous honor, and I sincerely congratulate Senator Metsger on his appointment by the Obama Administration,” Matz said. “Rick will bring valuable perspectives to the NCUA Board, having served as a volunteer credit union board member as well as a state legislator. I look forward to welcoming Rick as soon as he is seated on the NCUA Board.”

“I extend my sincerest congratulations to Senator Metsger on his nomination by President Obama to the National Credit Union Administration Board,” said Fryzel. “It is an honor and privilege to serve, and I wish him every success in his confirmation process.”
