The ASFPM Mentoring Program's purpose is to connect individual learning and growth with state capability for effective floodplain management. Mentors transfer knowledge, provide insight, and share experiences to develop effective state floodplain management programs and capable floodplain management professionals. Mentors provide the link between knowledge and skills and the "day-to-day job" duties.
ASFPM envisions that the Mentoring Program will be the primary resource used by state floodplain managers, state NFIP coordinators, state flood mapping coordinators and their staff for floodplain management training and professional development assistance. Whether new to the profession or seeking to expand knowledge and skills, value will be provided through the mentoring exchanges.
