Discussions are now in the early phases of starting an "association" to lead to "chapter" status in Iowa for the Association of State Floodplain Managers.
Here is a link to the ASFPM website.
If you think you would be interested in being a part of such organization (if ultimately established) and how you think it could help you (if you do floodplain management) would you please shoot me an email? We will be doing some strategic planning in April to keep moving along, and I will continue to provide updates as we go forward.
