18th Annual WAFSCM Conference

October 21 – 23, 2020

Kalahari Resort & Conference Center, Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin

 

 

The Wisconsin Association for Floodplain, Stormwater, and Coastal Management (WAFSCM) is holding its 18th Annual Conference on October 21-23 at the Kalahari Resort & Conference Center in Wisconsin Dells. We’re excited about this year’s lineup of workshops, speakers, and field tour. Professional Development Hours (PDHs) and Continuing Education Credits (CECs) can be earned at the workshops, main conference, and tour. Scholarship opportunities are available again this year. 

The first day of the conference will include the Certified Floodplain Manager (CFM) exam and a workshop, a networking social hour followed by our evening reception, and our usual game night with refreshments. Thursday will be the main conference with plenary and concurrent sessions throughout the day and awards luncheon. Friday will consist of a field tour in the Wausau area. 

As always, we anticipate a dynamic group of professionals coming to share their experience in a variety of water ‐related issues from all sectors: local government leaders, community administrators, planning agencies, public works departments, developers, consultants, environmental groups, state and federal agencies and students. 

A Call for Presentations for the annual conference is currently open. Those wishing to submit an abstract (max. 200 words) are asked to do so by July 6, 2020 (extended).
