Want To Be a Certified Floodplain Manager?

Through the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM), our mothership, Certification in floodplain management is offered. I offer this exam each year at our annual conference. It is a test that requires some studying and good working knowledge of the National Flood Insurance Program. There is a fee to take the exam and annual CEU's to maintain the Certification. It is a great way to show our professionalism in our field. If you are interested in taking this exam, please let me know and I will get you the study material for this exam.

Welcome To Our Blog!

It's true, UFSMA has a blog. Long over due. Now we can talk about all sorts of floodplain and stormwater issues and announce conferences and workshops better. I hope you will join me in this conversation and get our association active. I appreciate all our members. What a great group ! Our conference is November 19-20, 2009 at the St. George Abbey Inn. We are looking for presentations, so if you have had a successful project or want to share with us, we would love to hear from you. Email me at judywatanabe@utah.gov and let me know your idea. Stay tuned to this blog. I hope to post to it often.
