Changing our Dues Structure

For the first time since our founding in 2000, we are changing our dues structure. This was done after considerable discussion by the Board of Directors, after reviewing the dues of state floodplain chapters throughout the nation, and in an effort to increase our income to continue to support a membership and events coordinator in order to provide more training and other member services.

Member Benefits
Stay Informed The Association gathers articles and events of interest to inform its membership on issues of general interest. Topics include legislation affecting floodplain and stormwater management, local activities, hazard mitigation, new state and federal programs, publications, best practices, lessons learned and upcoming conferences.
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, erosion control and many other topics of interest.  The Association also sponsors other trainings and information sessions throughout the year. 

Build Your Network Harness the power of over 1,000 communities across New York State to ask questions, share best practices and compare lessons learned.

Speaking in 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.  The NYSFSMA unified positions are formed through formal and informal discussions held during committee meetings as well as during the annual meeting. 

Gain National Perspective NYSFSMA is a state chapter of the national Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM). ASFPM is the nation's most respected voice in floodplain management and related issues, and works with its 37 chapters to ensure that chapter voices are heard on the national level.
