The Flood Risk Communication Toolkit for Community Officials
Instructors: Priscilla Scruggs and Peter Herrick, Jr. 

This workshop will introduce participants to the components of the Flood Risk Toolkit for Community Officials and discuss implementation opportunities. The Toolkit is a resource designed by FEMA to assist community officials in their efforts to communicate flood risk to the public. The Toolkit is useful for those new to a position or simply in need of tools to communicate flood risk. This workshop is ideal for participants who don’t have time to wade through the expansive programmatic guidance and who want something timely and immediate that will equip them with enough information to thoughtfully engage with the public.

Engaging Elected Officials in Coastal and Floodplain Management
Instructors: Haley Briel, MS and Alexis Cunnningham, MS

As extreme weather and climate-related events are increasing in frequency and severity, it is particularly important for coastal and floodplain managers to work with their local elected officials and planning and emergency management departments to build resilience at the local level. Join us for an interactive workshop on how floodplain managers can effectively engage and communicate with local elected officials to encourage the development of more resilient communities. This workshop will showcase the new Local Government Guide to Coastal Management and work being done on the ground by Strengthening Coastal Counties’ Resilience communities in the Gulf of Mexico NOAA region.

This is your chance to connect with experts on the latest in nonstructural methods.
