The Ohio Statewide Floodplain Management Conference is an annual training event that focuses on various elements of floodplain management, such as regulations, insurance, mapping, engineering, and natural benefits.  The conference is intended to develop and expand the capabilities of floodplain management professionals throughout Ohio.  Conference sessions are designed to provide local floodplain managers with information and skills necessary to implement effective floodplain management programs within their respective communities.

The Ohio Statewide Floodplain Management Conference is a cooperative effort between the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), and the Ohio Floodplain Management Association (OFMA). 

In 2019, OFMA is also co-hosting the 2019 ASFPM National Conference in Cleveland, OH on May 19-23, 2019.  Since many Floodplain Managers may not be able to attend this training opportunity, OFMA is partnering with the Water Management Association of Ohio (WMAO) to offer Floodplain Management Sessions at the WMAO annual conference.

  • Floodplain Manager Bootcamp
