Our History

The organization was formed as an association in 2000 and currently has over 200 members. In 2004, the Association applied and was granted Chapter status by the national organization, Association of State Floodplain Managers. In 2009, the Annual Conference was expanded and was held as a joint effort with the Minnesota Association of Floodplain Managers. Efforts are being made to include both local and regional activities in the future. Since 2010, we have made efforts to expand our membership and to become more active in the State through the Association’s committees and workshops. The Wisconsin Association for Floodplain, Stormwater, and Coastal Management promotes the common interest in floodplain, stormwater, and coastal management, to enhance cooperation between the various elated private, local, regional, state, and federal agencies; and encourages and ensures effective, new and innovate approaches to managing the state’s floodplain, stormwater, and coastal systems.
