Implementation and Impacts of Flood Insurance Reform Legislation
Friday, February 06, 2015 at 1:30 PM (90 minutes)

Location:  Online
Time:  1:30 PM - 3:00 PM 
 
SPONSOR
Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM)

LOCATION
Online - Webinar
Friday, February 6, 2015
1:30pm - 3:00pm Central Standard Time (starting at 2:30pm Eastern, 12:30pm Mountain, 11:30am Pacific)

DETAILS
This webinar was formerly titled, "HFIAA (GW-14) Meets BW-12"

The Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014 recently became law, but changes have already been put in place and more are planned as implementation continues for both the new law and the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012. Rather than rolling back the Biggert-Waters reforms, the HFIAA in fact added more sections while rolling back only a couple. Floodplain managers and the public will still need to understand the reforms in both bills and be prepared to address the flood insurance affordability issues that remain.

HFIAA will affect every single NFIP policyholder and its reforms actually could result in higher total flood insurance costs for some property owners than under Biggert-Waters. Sadly, flood insurance affordability will continue to be an issue. There are several changes related to flood mapping processes, to outreach, to information on the maps themselves. FEMA is trying to fast track many of these changes but will be slowed down due to rulemaking on others.

In this webinar, you will learn:
  • What sections and changes have already been implemented and which will be implemented in the near future,
  • To be better prepared for the questions from policy- and non-policyholders on implementation of the reform laws including rate changes and premium refunds, and
  • Strategies and actions that can be taken to help policyholders reduce flood insurance premiums and address affordability.
All registered participants will receive access to an electronic recording of this eLearning training opportunity!

Nonstructural Flood Proofing Techniques for At-Risk Development
Thursday, February 12, 2015 at 1:00 PM (90 minutes)

Location:  Online
Time:  1:00 PM - 2:30 PM 
 
SPONSOR
Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM)

LOCATION
Online - Webinar
Thursday, February 12, 2015
1:00PM - 2:30PM Central Time
(starting at 2pm ET, 12pm MT, 11am PT)

DETAILS
There are many reasons to consider flood proofing techniques:  Providing citizens solid technical assistance and advice when applying for floodplain development permits, helping your community understand different flood proofing alternatives when updating its hazard mitigation plan or applying for hazard mitigation funds, or helping to reduce upcoming increases in flood insurance costs by using these techniques to mitigate the flood risk.  More and more, floodplain managers are being called upon by citizens and elected leaders alike to provide options in reducing costs and risks associated with flooding and flood insurance.  Especially with recent changes in the NFIP and potential increases in premiums for existing at-risk structures, this assistance is more important than ever. 

The Association of State Floodplain Mangers is hosting a webinar on these important flood risk reduction measures and is pleased to have Randall (Randy) Behm, PE CFM, Chief – Flood Risk and Floodplain Management Section - United States Army Corps of Engineers- Omaha District present on this topic.  Randy is also the Chair of the Corps’ National Nonstructural Flood Proofing Committee which is a source of technical resources on flood proofing techniques.  Randy is a nationally recognized expert on flood proofing and he will give an overview of the various techniques – as well as consideration for their use – in this 1.5 hour webinar.  Tools and materials will be identified to help you better understand these nonstructural approaches.  

In this webinar you will:
  • Learn about several different techniques for flood proofing existing at-risk or new development in flood prone areas
  • Understand the plus' and minuses of each technique as well as special considerations for using them
  • Identify other sources of in-depth materials on each technique, including the NFPC’s Flood Damage Reduction Matrix of flood proofing options and other tools.
  • Learn about nonstructural planning requirements for non-Federal partners in pursuit of feasible nonstructural flood risk reduction measures through USACE programs.
Randall L. Behm, P.E., CFM
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

Randall Behm is the Chief of the Flood Risk and Floodplain Management Section for the US Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District. He manages a stand-alone office of a team of seven engineers totally dedicated to identifying and reducing flood risk, formulating nonstructural mitigation measures, and supporting sound floodplain management. Mr. Behm has been in this position since July 2001. He is also the Committee Chairman for the Corps’ National Nonstructural Flood Proofing Committee. The committee has 7 members and several technical advisors who advocate a complete set of nonstructural tools for reducing flood risk. Prior to these current positions, Mr. Behm has served as a Program Manager, a Hydraulic Design Engineer, and a Project Manager. He has been an employee of the Omaha District for 28 years and was the recipient of US Army Corps of Engineers Flood Risk Manager of the Year for 2012.

Finding that Base Flood Elevation (BFE)! Tools and Techniques for Determining BFEs
Friday, March 27, 2015 at 1:00 PM (90 minutes)

Location:  Online
Time:  1:00 PM - 2:30 PM 
 
SPONSOR
Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM)

LOCATION
Online - Webinar
Friday, March 27, 2015
1:00PM - 2:30PM Central Time
(starting at 2pm ET, 12pm MT, 11am PT)

DETAILS
Are you getting more questions about determining BFEs at a site, even in approximate A Zones? Do you work with flood development permits or FEMA Elevation Certificates (ECs)? Do you need a BFE for an approximate A zone but are unsure where to start? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, this webinar is for you.

Recent NFIP reforms make determining precise flood risk more important than ever in response to rising flood insurance costs. Identifying a BFE with confidence helps to determine actuarial flood insurance rates and plan for possible flood mitigation actions. In some cases the BFE is already available, in others it must be calculated.

Brian Varrella, PE, CFM is co-owner of Forum V Consulting, Floodplain Manager for the City of Fort Collins, and Chair of the Colorado Assn. of Stormwater and Floodplain Mgrs. He has helped professionals and property owners identify BFEs in 19 states across the nation. Brian's approach uses all available resources to determine BFEs to prepare local permits and complete ECs in riverine Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs). Determining BFEs is not an impossible task, and the demand for more detailed information is increasing!

In this webinar we will:
  • Identify and use free resources to determine riverine BFEs
  • Explain the simplified and detailed methods for determining BFEs
  • Determine how and when to apply different methods in approximate A Zone SFHAs.
All registered participants will receive access to an electronic recording of this eLearning training opportunity, and will be given links to various free resources available to anyone working with BFEs.

Presenter:
Brian Varrella PE, CFM, City of Fort Collins Floodplain Administrator and Chair of the Colorado Association of Stormwater and Floodplain Managers, routinely helps surveyors, engineers, and property owners with this difficult issue. Brian’s approach is to use all available resources to determine BFEs primarily for use in preparing local permits and completing Elevation Certificates. Fort Collins, a CRS Class 4 community, has used these techniques successfully. Determining BFEs is not an impossible task and demand for providing this type of information is only going to increase!

Lender Based Flood Zone Determinations: Essentials for Floodplain Managers
Thursday, April 16, 2015 at 1:00 PM (90 minutes)

Location:  Online
Time:  1:00 PM - 2:30 PM 
 
SPONSOR
Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM)

LOCATION
Online - Webinar
Thursday, April 16, 2015
1:00PM - 2:30PM Central Time
(starting at 2pm ET, 12pm MT, 11am PT)

DETAILS
Lenders must make flood zone determinations to comply with the mandatory purchase requirement under the NFIP. This can be a mysterious process independent of permitting, outreach, and other duties done on a daily basis by floodplain managers. Floodplain managers are often asked about how flood determination companies make determinations and the accuracy of the information.
This webinar will provide perspective on the flood determinations used by lend-ers: the purpose and methods used, technical procedures, and challenges faced that may result in data discrepancies for stakeholders. We’ll address how new regulations and legislation affect the flood determination process, the companies that perform them, and the recipients of the data.

In this webinar we will:
  • Offer an overview of the zone determination process and regulations;
  • Walk through the Standard Hazard Determination Form (SHDF);
  • Explain how zone discrepancies occur and how they are resolved;
  • Outline challenges facing the flood determination industry, and implications;
  • Introduce the National Flood Determination Association's Certification Program, and how the NFDA can be a resource for floodplain managers.

Target Audience: Floodplain managers, state/local officials, and anyone dealing with the flood determination industry.

All registered participants will receive access to an electronic recording of this eLearning training opportunity, and will be given links to various free resources available to anyone working with BFEs.

Presenters:
Michael Bremer, CFM; Director & Techncial Mapping Committee Chair, NFDA
Scott Giberson, CFM; Legislative Committee Member, NFDA
Leila Taha, Board Secretary and Outreach Committee Chair, NFDA
