Flooding is the nation's #1 hazard. Add to that a lot of infrastructure and development that is either at moderate or high risk of flooding. How do we mitigate against this flood risk? How do we make sure what is being developed now isn't at risk in the future.

The National Flood Mitigation and FloodProofing Workshop focuses on these questions and in the workshop you will learn tools and techniques that floodplain managers, emergency mangers, property owners, and others can use to reduce flood risk. We will highlight the latest in mitigation and floodproofing techniques (elevation, acquisition wet and dry floodproofing, codes and regulations, easements, warning systems, etc.), products, success stories, funding programs and funding application processes and much more! Tuesday and Thursday feature plenary sessions, mini-workshops and break-out concurrent track sessions offering detailed presentations on engineered mitigation and flood-proofing projects, policy, grant funding, natural and beneficial uses including stream restoration, mitigation planning and outreach. In keeping with our past, all attendees will participate in our Wednesday field tours to see these techniques being applied in the field.

Are you a State Hazard Mitigation Officer (SHMO) staffer of a state mitigation program? You get your own day including an offering of the SHMO 101 course which will be taught by current SHMOs. Other attendees have the option to attend half-day training workshops. Finally, exhibitors will showcase the state-of-the-art in materials, services, equipment, accessories and techniques early in the week. Plenty of time is planned for attendees to exchange ideas and view the exhibits, so opportunities to network will be ample, as they are at all ASFPM-sponsored events.

ASFPM is proud to host the National Flood Mitigation & Floodproofing Workshop in the region devastated by flooding during Super Storm Sandy. During this seminal event, attendees will have the opportunity to attend technical training sessions, hear from national subject matter experts in mitigation, floodproofing engineering, watershed management and resiliency, and tour flood-impacted areas featuring state of the art mitigation projects. We are offering an opportunity for sponsorships at various levels for this workshop where you will have lengthy opportunities to engage with clients, colleagues, local officials, and industry leaders.

A new feature this year is a Sponsor and Exhibitors Cracker Barrel Tuesday evening where sponsor tables will be visited in 15 minute increments, allowing sponsors time to answer questions and discuss their services. See attached prospectus for more information.

12 CECs for CFMs who participate in the full workshop
