It’s interesting that as the unpredicted, unprecedented year of 2020 was closing, Rodney E. Hood identifies this quote as a professional mantra he lives by: “Proper preparation and planning can prevent poor performance.”
Chairman of the National Credit Union Administration Board, Hood says in this show, taped Dec. 8, that this quote he learned in high school helps him remember to always put his best foot forward and get “things done with professionalism, duty and integrity.”
“As long as I stay focused on those Ps … it gets me through,” he says.

Hood talks in the show about key things the National Credit Union Administration did in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including:
He also expresses his vision for the inception and next steps of NCUA’s Advancing Communities through Credit, Education, Stability and Support program, also known as ACCESS.
