NEW: Matz Welcomes Metsger At NCUA Reception
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (8/26/13, UPDATED 10:24 a.m. ET)--National Credit Union Administration Chair Debbie Matz this morning welcomed Richard Metsger to the NCUA board in a special reception at the agency headquarters here.

Matz told Metsger, "It is a great honor to join this board. We welcome you and welcome having our full three-person board again."

Metsger responded, "We all share a common goal of having a strong credit union system. Why we are here is to ensure those 95 million Americans that are members can continue their trust of credit unions.

"At the end of the day, what is really important under Chairman Matz's leadership, we will speak with one voice."
 
Matz presented Metsger with his official name plaque as the newest member of the board. He will attend his first open meeting as an agency leader on Sept. 12.

Metsger, who will serve as the 20th NCUA board member, was sworn in Friday by NCUA General Counsel Michael McKenna. He fills the seat vacated late last year after the term of board member Gigi Hyland expired.

Immediately following the swearing-in, Metsger attended a reception in his honor organized by the Northwest Credit Union Association  at Credit Union House.
