are invited to attend the third in a summer series of Natural
Floodplain Function Alliance-sponsored webinars on floodplain issues:
the Federal Interagency Floodplain Management Task Force Webinar, hosted by the Northeast-Midwest Institute.
The Federal Interagency Floodplain Management Task Force was authorized and established by Congress in 1975 to develop a
“unified national program for floodplain management.” The Task Force works to advance that goal by promoting flood hazard
and environmental stewardship of floodplains. This webinar will
present an overview of the Task Force, its history,
goals and objectives, and current activities. Presenters will include Pete Rabbon, Special Assistant on the National Flood Risk
Management Program with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, John McShane, National Estuary Program Team Leader with the
Office of Water, and Dave Stearrett, Chief, Floodplain Management
Branch at the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
