Norman Edward D'Amours (born October 14, 1937) was a Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives from New Hampshire from 1975 to 1985, where he was an active participant on issues related to banking and finance. Mr. D'Amours remains active in New Hampshire and national politics. He is a partner in Dierman, Wortley, Zola & Associates in Washington, DC. He is a graduate of Assumption College and the Boston University School of Law. Instead of running for a 6th term in the House of Representatives, he ran for the United States Senate in 1984 against Republican incumbent Gordon J. Humphrey and lost with 41%.

After his retirement from Congress, President Bill Clinton appointed him as the chairman of the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) and he was subsequently unanimously confirmed by the U.S. Senate. For seven years as chairman of NCUA, he managed this federal government agency with oversight over eleven thousand institutions managing $400 billion in assets.

D'Amours had also served as assistant attorney general for the state of New Hampshire from 1966 to 1969, and as city prosecutor of Manchester, New Hampshire from 1970 to 1972. Prior to his government service, D'Amours was a practicing attorney in New Hampshire.
