Open Invitation to Participate:
Flood Protection Structure Accreditation Task Force Web Meeting

 

 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) have established the Flood Protection Structure Accreditation Task Force.  Its goal is to develop recommendations for aligning agency processes so information collected for either USACE Inspection of Completed Works (ICW) program purposes or National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) levee accreditation purposes can be used interchangeably and to align the information and data collected by or for the USACE ICW program so it is sufficient to satisfy NFIP accreditation requirements for levee systems. 

 

The task force will host four web meetings to provide information on progress to-date and to solicit feedback on the potential recommendations.   Each web meeting will cover the same content.  You are welcome to share this invitation with others.  The following is the web meeting schedule:

 

Thursday, March 14: 2:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m. EST

Friday, March 15:  10:00 a.m. - noon EST

Monday, March 18: 10:00 a.m. - noon EST

Tuesday, March 19: 2:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m. EST

 

 

Please visit http://www.usace.army.mil/Missions/CivilWorks/LeveeSafetyProgram/TaskForce to register for a web meeting; obtain background information about the task force activities including the interim report; and submit comments online (note:  the online comment form will not be available until March 8).  In addition, a recording of the web meeting will be posted on this website March 20 for those unable to make one of the four sessions. 

 

You are not required to participate in a web meeting to provide comments to the task force. 
Comments will be accepted until
March 22, 2013.
