In keeping with tradition, all attendees are invited to participate in our Wednesday technical tours to see these techniques being applied in the field. Exhibitors will showcase their state-of-the-art materials, services, equipment, accessories and techniques early in the week at ASFPM’s first ever “Cracker Barrel” Tuesday evening. Plenty of time is planned for attendees to exchange ideas and view the exhibits, so opportunities to network will be ample. You don’t want to miss this event!

The workshop is being conducted in New Jersey, five years after Hurricane Sandy. Many speakers (and the Wednesday tours) will highlight work and policy related to Sandy recovery efforts, but this is a national workshop with a national slate of speakers.
Iselin, New Jersey is one Amtrak stop south of Newark International Airport and just a short train ride from the Metro Park Amtrak station into New York City’s Penn Station. Consider coming early or staying late to enjoy a late summer weekend in the Big Apple.
Sponsors are an integral part of offering a successful workshop. Without their generous support, ASFPM would not be able to offer such in-depth, comprehensive training.
