In preparation for a new year of flood threats, we invite you to fortify your own floodplain management awareness during National Flood Awareness Month. By the numbers, flood hazards are the #1 natural hazard in Pennsylvania, hurting our communities large and small through impacts on water quality, property and infrastructure to name a few. As floodplain managers, politicians, consultants/design professionals and municipal managers it is more important than ever to be prepared for flood hazards. Join us at our 2021 PAFPM Floodplain Management Symposium to help us prepare for, manage and mitigate flood risks in all of our communities.
We have all felt the loss of direct contact throughout this pandemic so we are teaming with government agencies (and hopefully deliver) a combination Training/Conference with in-person and virtual aspects. We’re designing the event to minimize risks while still getting people together where learning is enhanced by face-to-face meetings, including a proctored CFM Exam.
Disclaimer: In the event of travel or event restrictions, we'll be offering both in person and virtual participation, following the PA Department of Health's guidelines.
Education Credits: 6-8 (estimated)
