Funding: Federal Emergency Management Agency.

The ASFPM Annual National Conference has numerous concurrent session presentations on flood insurance and floodplain management related topics that could support and educate local officials on flood insurance and floodplain management related issues. Unfortunately, many local officials who would most benefit from this information are unable to attend the conference. In an effort to facilitate resources for those unable to attend, videos of select presentations will be made available for viewing. A strategy will be developed to identify appropriate and efficient ways to market these video resources to various audiences and markets.
