A Decade of Progress
The New Jersey Association for Floodplain Management's (NJAFM) annual conference is the premier floodplain management conference in the Northeast. With over 400 members, this conference creates a forum for the region and nation's foremost experts in floodplain mangement.
The annual conference provides an opportunity for professionals in the fields of engineering, hydrology, geology, planning, code enforcement, floodplain management and emergency management to participate in plenary sessions and concurrent sessions on a broad range of relevant topics. The conference provides training opportunities and networking events.
This year will be the 10th Annual Conference. For this monumental event will be held on October 15 & 16, 2014 at Bally's in Atlantic City. The conference also includes a series of training workshops on the afternoon of Tuesday October 14, which are free with paid conference registration.
Over the past 10 years, NJAFM has worked diligently to train and educate municipal officials and residents, to advocate for sound floodplain management policy, and to mitigate the adverse impacts of storms and floods. While we have made significant contributions to improved floodplain management over the past decade, much work remains to be done. This year’s conference will provide an opportunity to review the progress we have made, identify the ongoing challenges we face, and to focus on the important work ahead.
