The national awards for excellence in flood loss reduction are conferred at the annual floodplain managers conference each spring, and you are invited to feature YOUR outstanding local or state program or person! The 2010 ceremony will be held at the annual ASFPM Awards luncheon, noon Thursday May 20, at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Please see the Award categories and submittal instructions at http://www.floods.org/awardsform.asp. Make sure you complete this online submission by the March 1 deadline; it will not be extended since the conference is a month earlier this year. It is highly recommended that you attach applicable letters of support for your nomination.
You may direct any questions to Diane Brown in the ASPFM office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 608-441-3003. Winners will be notified in April to allow time to make travel arrangements. We appreciate your help in showcasing what works, as we commemorate those who reduce flood damages in the nation and make flood risk management an achievable reality.
