"Join nearly 1,200 of the nation's floodplain managers June 1 - 6, 2014, at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, Washington as we pilot improvements in flood risk management and national policy. Government Officials, planners, engineers, consultants, watershed managers, flood protection product vendors, educators, and others will gather for the most comprehensive floodplain management conference in the world. Participants interact, exchange ideas, make contacts, form partnerships, and prepare for a more sustainable future for flood damage reduction.

Our theme for 2014 is a nod to our goals of habitat restoration and preservation as well as the tenets of multi-objective management. With over 71 families of fishes found in the waterways feeding into Puget Sound, including the distinctive steelhead salmon, Seattle is the perfect location to highlight our efforts to Make Room for Floods and Fish.

The conference is conducted by the Association of State Floodplain Managers, the world's leading voice for sound floodplain management, with 35 Chapters and over 15,000 members world-wide."
