The Premier Flood Conference

Just announced:

Read the update here
We are writing to let you know that the 2021 ASFPM Annual National Conference will be an entirely virtual event. Although this was not an easy decision, we at the ASFPM Executive Office considered all options, and we are confident that this is the right way forward.
Along with all of you, we have hoped and waited to see if the COVID-19 global pandemic situation would improve and we might see some signs of a return to normalcy. Unfortunately, at this point, we believe not enough will change in order to allow us to meet safely in-person the first week of May. The health and safety of our members and attendees is our number one priority - and the best way to ensure that safety is to hold the conference in a virtual space.

We had great success with our virtual conference in 2020, and we are planning an even better experience for our 2021 virtual conference. The full virtual program will be posted soon, and registration will open in February. Stay tuned for more updates!

If you submitted an abstract to our Call for Abstracts, we will soon be sending notifications about the status of your abstract.

We are excited to bring the 2021 ASFPM Annual National Conference to you and hope that you will join us from home!
