ASFPM supports 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. This subcommittee is co-chaired by Brooke Seymour, P.E., CFM with Mile High Flood District and Maria Lamm, CFM with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources. 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.
