FEMA Seeks Technical Mapping Advisory Council Members

FEMA seeks qualified individuals to serve on the Technical Mapping Advisory Council. The council is a federal advisory committee established to review and make recommendations to FEMA on matters related to the national flood mapping program authorized under the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012.

In addition, the council submits an annual report to the FEMA Administrator that contains:

  • A description of the activities of the council.
  • An evaluation of the status and performance of Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) and mapping activities to revise and update FIRMs.
  • A summary of recommendations made by the council to the FEMA Administrator.
  • The council is comprised of representatives from federal, state, local and private sector organizations. Members will be appointed based on their demonstrated knowledge and competence in areas such as surveying, cartography, remote sensing, geospatial information systems or the technical aspects of preparing and using flood insurance rate maps.

Applicants will be considered for a 3-year appointment for four council vacancies for the summer/fall 2022 term. Applications will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. ET on Aug 8.
