Dear Flood Insurance and Floodplain Regulations Committee Members:
FEMA recently released a draft policy that potentially affects many, if not most, communities. The FEMA draft policy on Floodplain Management Requirements for Agricultural Structures and Accessory Structures is available at: https://www.fema.gov/floodplain-management.
ASFPM encourages all its members to review and comment to FEMA by the Jan. 21, 2019 deadline. ASFPM will also submit comments. Please send a copy of your comments to us by Jan. 14 at InsuranceCorner@floods.org, so we can summarize and reinforce the concerns and recommendations of our membership.
Your Flood Insurance Committee Co-chairs
Bruce A. Bender and Steve Samuelson
Floodplain Regulations Committee Co-chairs
Bill Nechamen and Stacey Ricks
KAFM is welcome to announce its new 2019 Chairman Mr. Jon Bristor, CFM. After 7 years of dedicated service from 2011-2018, Mr. Don Slone, AICP, CFM, has decided to retire.
All of KAFM wishes him the best of luck and he will be missed!
