LATEST NEWS 

The Association of State Floodplain Managers Foundation has reviewed all the abstracts that were received for the 2019 Student Paper Competition and selected the three semi-finalists. Letters have been sent to all of the students who submitted abstracts to us this year. The semi-finalists have been asked to submit a paper by April 12 and invited to present that paper at a special session during the ASFPM annual national conference May 21 in Cleveland, OH. 

In March, the foundation hosted the 6th Gilbert F. White National Flood Policy Forum in Washington, DC. The topic will be "Increasing Our Resiliency to Urban Flooding." One hundred invited experts sought to answer the high-level question: "How can we be better equipped as a nation to deal with rapidly increasing flood risk in urban areas?" 

ASFPM Foundation and the Floodplain Management Association (CA, HI, NV) co-hosted the State Flood Risk Symposium in Sacramento on April 4. Invited experts convened to examine the topic "The Differing California Flood Disasters."  Three subtopics were examined. FMA is working on developing policy recommendations and action plans, as well as continuing the discussions in workshops at their future conference.
