Jamie Reinke, P.E., CFM, head of the floodplain section at the Nebraska Department of Natural Resources (NeDNR), was appointed to the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Technical Mapping Advisory Council (TMAC).
“I am extremely excited to join the Technical Mapping Advisory Council,” Reinke said; “and I hope the experience I bring from an agency that primarily conducts FEMA mapping in-house will bring value to the team. Residing in a midwestern state, I hope to bring an interesting perspective on the needs of rural communities in middle America, which have been overlooked in the past.”
Reinke has been with the NeDNR since March 2016 and assumed the lead role in April 2022. In her role at NeDNR, Reinke has served as the State CTP Manager, State Silver Jackets lead, and a team leader. She is currently the interim State National Flood Insurance Program Coordinator. The Silver Jackets team, on which Reinke serves as lead, was awarded Team of the Year honors in 2021
The Technical Mapping Advisory Council (TMAC) 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.
Reinke will serve a three-year term, which began on January 10, 2023.
