The National Committee on Levee Safety is made up of representatives from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, numerous state, regional, and local agencies, and the private sector. Committee members have expertise in engineering, law, public administration, and communication. Committee members bring the important perspective of their nominating sector (e.g., state agencies in general rather than any particular state or agency) as well as their personal expertise and experience to the deliberations of the Committee.
