NJAFM during 2018 offered several highly successful monthly in-person dinner seminars where members could attend, socialize over dinner and hear a speaker talk about a topic related to floodplain management and obtain continuing education credits for their particular discipline. In the spring of 2020. An important goal of the New Jersey Association for Floodplain Management is to provide members with opportunities to learn and grow as professionals and floodplain managers. During this unprecedented time when group gatherings are not possible, NJAFM is proud to offer a series of webinars on a range of topics. These webinars are free to members and a charge is made for non-members.
