Membership in the Louisiana Flood Plain Management Association
includes representatives from all levels of government (floodplain
administrators, permit officials, agency personnel), the private sector
(planners, engineers, surveyors, realtors, bankers, lenders, and
insurance agents), and the university community. Full members, any
public or private professional or elected official involved in flood
management, may vote on Association issues, serve on committees, and
receive discounts on Association activities. Student members are full or
part-time students with an interest in flood management. Although
students cannot vote, they may participate on committees.
The Louisiana Floodplain Management Association undertakes many
- ANNUAL STATE CONFERENCE each spring in a different community;
- SEMI-ANNUAL WORKSHOPS where we share Louisiana experiences and
information by traveling to you when invited;
- PERIODIC NEWSLETTER – "FLOODWATCH" – which
distributes information to LFMA members on flood related activities,
programs, publications, and legislation.
- NETWORK for our members to discuss problems, share solutions, or
exchange ideas; and
- RECOGNITION AND ATTENTION to our members and community leaders for
outstanding or exemplary achievements.
- INTERFACE WITH the Association Of State Floodplain Managers to
whom we pass your ideas and concerns for ultimate presentation to
Congress and other states.
Our strength lies in a diverse membership representing a
cross-section of people from and about Louisiana. We, therefore, include
all regions in our decisions, operations, and functions. In addition to
a Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer, the Board of Directors
seats eight representatives from the planning regions of the state, the
Chair Emeritus, Workshop Coordinator, and Committee Chairs. The Regional
Representatives work on the Annual Conference and workshops; volunteer
as speakers at local meetings; help develop responses to issues when the
board chooses to comment on issues of state or national concern;
distribute information to their regional members; and bring ideas from
the region to the board. We encourage you to become active in the
Louisiana Floodplain Management Association. You may participate as much
as time will allow you to commit.
