ALEXANDRIA, Va. (Oct. 19, 2012) – NCUA Board Chairman Debbie Matz recently joined Michael Keegan, managing editor of The Business of Government magazine and host of the Business of Government Hour radio program, for a wide-ranging conversation about the credit union industry and NCUA’s role in leading that industry out of the recession.
The program, broadcast on Federal News Radio, is archived on the magazine’s website and will be the basis of a profile in the magazine’s Fall/Winter issue.
The one-hour interview covered an array of topics, including:
- How NCUA and credit unions worked to stabilize the industry during the recent recession and chart a course for recovery;
- How credit unions have grown and become an increasingly important part of the U.S. economy;
- The importance of innovative management; and
- What the future holds in store for the agency and for credit unions.
Matz was nominated by President Barack Obama to serve as NCUA’s eighth board chair. After confirmation by the U.S. Senate on Aug. 7, 2009, she was sworn in on Aug. 24, 2009. She previously served as a board member at NCUA from January 2002 to October 2005.
