Served Since: Oct. 9, 1997 Became Chairman: Sept. 13, 2001 Scheduled Departure: April 30, 2004 Many would argue that NCUA Chairman Dennis Dollar leaves behind a legacy that can’t be measured only in tangible accomplishments. He brought dignity and respect to the agency’s top job and elevated the profile of NCUA in Washington, not to mention uplifting credit union faithful who after NCUA Chairman Norm D’Amours tenure were anxious to have a chairman who seemed to have credit unions’ best interest at heart. Here is a look of some of Dollar’s biggest achievements. * Risk-focused exams and extended 18-month examination cycle * New field of membership rule, including TIP-trade, industry, or profession-charters * RegFlex-regulatory flexibility for credit unions with history of sound management * Opening budget and overhead transfer rate setting process to the public * Accountability in Management, which streamlined NCUA’s central office and cut the regions back from six to five * Access Across America initiative to encourage adoption of underserved areas with emphasis on faith-based credit unions, which led to record numbers of underserved areas added * Named Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council Vice Chair * Proposed risk-weighted Prompt Corrective Action included in H.R. 3579, the Credit Union Regulatory Improvements Act
