AFMA Fall Conference

Highlighting the AFMA calendar year, our annual fall conference is a unique opportunity for the entire Arkansas floodplain management community to gather as one organization dedicated to mitigating hazards everywhere.

This multi-day event provides a comprehensive review of sound floodplain management best practices, complete with expert presentations from federal agencies, other state floodplain management associations, and peers among the AFMA membership.

So much information is available that it’s not uncommon to have multiple break-out sessions every day of the conference. And while the agenda is certain to be packed, attendees have no trouble in finding the information necessary to successfully manage the floodplain.

Typical course topics and titles from previous conferences include:

  • Map Modernization in Arkansas
  • Zone A Determinations
  • Community Rating System (CRS)
  • Basic Floodplain Management
  • Elevation Certificate Workshop

Attendees will catch-up on the latest news from FEMA and participate in open discussions about hot topics related to floodplain management.
