ASFPM Association of State Floodplain Managers


Registration Opens for the 2021 ASFPM Virtual Conference

Mar 9, 2021 | What's New

ASFPM Conference, May 10-14, 2021 With the 45th Annual National Conference beginning in just two months, now is the time to secure your spot for the nation’s premier conference dedicated to all aspects of flooding and floodplain management, May 10-14.

Like last year, the 2021 conference will be held entirely online. And given that last year’s virtual conference broke all attendance records with nearly 2000 attendees representing every state in the nation, we’re expecting an even bigger and better turnout for 2021.

What won’t change? Exceptional content delivered by leading experts in the field.

Here’s what you can expect
ASFPM’s virtual conference is a five-day event featuring three plenary presentations, six workshops, and 58 concurrent sessions for a total of more than 160 presentations. All sessions will be actively moderated with live Q&A to ensure an engaging and interactive experience.

Topics include:

  • Coastal Issues
  • Dams & Levees
  • Mapping
  • Mitigation
  • Modeling
  • Natural & Beneficial Functions
  • NFIP
  • Post-Disaster
  • Risk Communication
  • Social Justice
  • Stormwater & Urban Flooding

Day 1 and Day 5 of the conference (May 10 and May 14) will feature three optional half-day workshops apiece (additional fee required). The heart of the conference will run May 11, 12, and 13 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Central each day for three full days of learning.
