State Flood Risk Symposia

ASFPM Foundation is currently soliciting applications for a chapter to co-host  the next symposium. 2020 State Flood Risk Symposium Chapter Co-Host Applications are due August 2, 2019.

The ASFPM Foundation has a strong presence in national policy discussions about flood risk. Since 2004, it has hosted six Gilbert F. White National Flood Policy Forums, in which groups of 100 national and international experts and leaders convened in Washington, D.C.  These forums focus on reducing flood losses, managing flood risks and floodplain resources, the future of floodplain management, holistic coast approaches, and addressing new federal standards and requirements. The goal of each forum was to facilitate discussion on flood risk, establish priorities for improving policy and program implementation, and to formulate recommendations and directions for the future. 

Based on the success of the national forums, in 2011 the foundation began promoting similar meetings at the state level. These symposia are co-hosted by ASFPM Chapters and designed to focus on flood risk management issues at the community and state level. With the guidance of ASFPM Foundation trustees, the host chapter chooses the topic focus for the symposium they are hosting and develops the list of invitees. In addition to productive discussions and relationship building, there is a strong emphasis on proposed action items and how to measure progress in flood risk management at the community level. 

Since 2011, state flood risk symposia have been held in Arizona, California, Colorado,  Connecticut, Georgia, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Texas (twice). Following are reports and/or proceedings for each of the state flood risk symposia held since 2011:
