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

Developing & Implementing Dam Removal Projects Thursday, September 24, 2015 at 1:00 PM (120 minutes)
Time: 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM)
Online - Webinar Thursday, September 24, 2015 1:00pm - 3:00pm Central Time (starting at 2:00pm ET, 12:00pm MT, 11:00am PT)
DETAILS Few things have as fundamental an impact on rivers as dams. Dams block a flow and can harm fish and wildlife, affect clean water, and alter recreation. When the negative impacts of a dam on the river and communities outweigh the benefits, dam removal may be a sound approach to restore healthy rivers, floodplains, and riverside communities.
Dam removal projects may appear intimidating; however, American Rivers has developed training designed to empower floodplain managers, state agencies, nonprofits, and others to undertake these projects. This webinar is a broad introduction to American Rivers’ more advanced, multi-day training. We will kick off the webinar with an overview of why dam removal is an effective approach for restoring rivers and floodplains, before moving into resources and strategies for initial project exploration. Finally, we break down the science and design of dam removals into six components.
In this webinar, you will learn:
steps in the dam removal process;
how to develop a planning data sheet to determine if your project is straightforward or complex; and
ow to scope out the components of a dam removal project.
All registered participants will receive access to an electronic recording of this eLearning training opportunity! Presenters
