ASFPM will help support Cooperating Technical Partners. The project involves documenting best practices and providing training. In conjunction with this effort, a Mapping and Engineering Standards Subcommittee has been established that focuses on CTPs. Thuy Patton of Colorado and Carey Johnson of Kentucky are co-chairs of this subcommittee. Alan Lulloff with the ASFPM executive office is on the FEMA CTP Community of Practice Steering Committee and was part of the FEMA five-year CTP Integrated Planning Team. The ASFPM Board of Directors recently passed a resolution supporting FEMA’s Cooperating Technical Partners program. ASFPM highlights that the program is just as much about building partnerships as it is about mapping Special Flood Hazard Areas.
