Floodplain Management Association national conference - 2013

Meeting or Conference
Floodplain Management Association (FMA)
28-31 May 2013
Twin Towns Clubs and Resorts, Tweed Heads, NSW

The Floodplain Management Association Conference has been held annually for over 50 years and is the most respected floodplain industry event held in Australia. With major flooding occurring over much of Australia in recent years it is time for a national conference to review learning from these events, explore opportunities and develop national solutions. The 2013 conference will be the first aimed at involving flood risk managers from across Australia, and to ensure its success it is guided by a Conference Advisory Committee with representatives from every state and territory.  The conference will include outstanding keynote speakers, plenary sessions, concurrent sessions, field trips addressing floodplain issues in northern NSW and the Gold Coast, plus networking events. There will also be a pre-conference workshop on the Tuesday. Theme: National Floodplain Management-shared experiences, national solutions
