$ TRAINING WORKSHOP * Why Am I Flooding When I Am Nowhere Near a Floodplain?
Fee: $45, 2 CECs
Instructors: Janet Meshek, PE, CFM, Meshek & Associates, PLC 

Learn about what works and what doesn’t work when it comes to preventing localized flooding, as well as how we got into this mess in the first place! This workshop exposes some of the attempts made by developers and their engineers to construct substandard developments and the unfortunate results. We deal with how to proactively avoid these problems in the project review phase. This workshop offers common sense advice for community plan reviewers whether they are engineers or not.

1:00 – 5:00

$ TRAINING WORKSHOP Elevation Certificates and LOMAs:  The proper way to complete FEMA’s Elevation Certificate, MT-1 and MT-EZ forms, and how these are used in floodplain management.
Fee: $45, 3.5 CECs
Instructors: Becca Fricke-Croft, CFM, Brock Remus, CFM Atkins North America; Corey Garyotis, PE, CFM, Alabama Office of Water Resources 

This workshop will go through FEMA's latest Elevation Certificate section by section to help participants verify forms are being completed correctly by both licensed professionals and local officials.  Specific focus will be applied to building diagrams since they are very important in floodplain management at the local level and insurance rating by the NFIP.  The workshop will then go through the proper submittal of MT-1s identifying common shortfalls, submittal options, and use of FEMA’s Flood Map Service Center.

1:00 – 5:00
