Professional Development
Each year, the Association sponsors a 3-day conference, providing members with training opportunities in the field of floodplain and stormwater management.  Experts in the field are invited to speak on a variety of issues including floodplain management, flood hazard mitigation, hydrologic and hydraulic studies, map revisions, map amendments, state permits, stream preservation, stormwater detention and retention, wetlands, and erosion control.  The Association also sponsors other training or information sessions throughout the year.
Speaking with One Voice
NYSFSMA members gain the ability to exchange ideas and best practices, discuss and communicate a uniform position on current concerns, local programs, and other issues impacting floodplain and stormwater management.  NYSFSMA unified positions are formed through formal and informal discussions held during committee meetings as well as during the annual meeting.
