Why join NCAFPM?
NCAFPM offers two conferences each year, one in the spring usually on the coast and one in the fall in the mountains. Both offer presentations, training, the CFM exam, as well as the opportunity to get to know and catch up with other floodplain managers in the state (and often out-of-state). Agendas from our past conferences are available at ncafpm.org/conference.html.
Our bi-annual newsletter is published about a month before each conference. You can view past issues at ncafpm.org/flashflood.html.
CFM Mentoring Program
NCAFPM kicked off our CFM mentoring program last year. For information about this program, go to ncafpm.org/CFM-mentor.html.
Our Regional Representatives keep a pulse on different areas of North Carolina and touch base with other members in their region periodically. You can contact your Regional Rep directly for more information. ncafpm.org/regions.html
Being a part of NCAFPM is joining a network of like-minded professionals with whom you can ask questions and discuss floodplain-related issues. We have members from the government (NCEM, NFIP, FEMA, local governments) and consulting firms from the coast to the mountains.
There are two classifications of members in NCAFPM.
- FULL ($60/year) - Members of governmental agencies and other professionals such as Engineers, Insurance Agents, or Land Surveyors involved in floodplain management or others deemed appropriate by the Board of Directors.
- STUDENT ($10/year) - Members are registered, full or part-time students interested in floodplain management. Please contact Kelly Keesling if you fall into this category.
Full members of the Association are voting members. In addition, your full membership qualifies you for a lower rate for your Certified Floodplain Manager (CFM) fee.
Student members are entitled to sit and vote on NCAFPM Committees. They are not entitled to general membership voting rights. Student membership does not qualify you for the lower CFM fee.
Annual dues are $60 per person for Full Members and $10 per person for Student Members.

NCAFPMís annual membership fees have been increased from $40 to $60 following a vote at the membership meeting on April 28, 2015 at the annual conference in New Bern. The fee increase was recommended by the Finance Committee as a means to prevent the steady decline in NCAFPMís bank account that had been occurring over the past few years. The account decline was caused because conference, administrative and other costs were increasing at a greater rate than income from annual membership and conference registration fees.
