State Flood Risk Symposia

The ASFPM Foundation has a strong presence in national discussions about flood risk. Over the past decade, it’s sponsored five “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. Since 2011, State Flood Risk Symposia have been held in Colorado, Indiana, Texas (2), Georgia, Florida, Illinois, Arizona, New York, North Carolina and Oklahoma (thru March 2017). In addition to productive discussions, there is a strong emphasis on proposed action items and how to measure progress in flood risk management at the community level. Following are reports, press releases, and/or summaries for each of the 11 state symposia since 2011.
