Sally Cook received the ASFPM 2019 John Ivey Award for Excellence in Certification
Thursday, June 27, 2019

L-R: Sally Cook, floodplain manager coordinator for the Manatee County, Florida Building & Development Services, and ASFPM Executive Director Chad Berginnis.

The John Ivey Award for Excellence in Certification recognizes exceptional efforts to promote the professional certification of floodplain managers.

This year's winner, Sally Cook, is the floodplain manager coordinator for the Manatee County, Florida Building & Development Services. Her special philosophy to floodplain management is, "We’ll get there together, or not at all--and not at all is not an option." She is passionate about looking for ways to assist current and future CFMs by identifying resources, connecting people and sharing information with chapter members and floodplain managers all across her state.

Cook had a direct impact on Florida's education program, which led to a significant improvement in class quality and availability, "flooding" the entire state with vital training, which allowed the Florida Floodplain Managers Association to grow from 338 members in 2012 to more than 900 members today.

She coordinates with a wide variety of organizations and has expanded education into key related disciplines and professionals, including engineers, surveyors, building officials, code compliance officers and insurance agents, inspiring them to become CFMs. Her dedication and passion for the CFM® program are why she won this award and is an example for others to follow!
