‘ASFPM the Foundation’ Congratulates
‘ASFPM the Association’ for a Job Well Done!

The ASFPM Foundation would like to congratulate ASFPM for its exceptionally successful 2022 Annual National Conference this past May in Orlando, Florida. With over 1,300 in-person attendees, the Conference provided us with the opportunity to reconnect with friends and colleagues. Importantly, we learned about important issues and challenges we face as the floodplain management community, along with solutions and advancements to reduce flood risk and create a more resilient and sustainable future.

The Foundation also would like to thank its many donors who made this year’s conference a truly successful endeavor – both professionally and financially. We had record-breaking donations of over $37,000, with the Live Auction alone bringing in over $7,800.

Other important highlights include:

  • The announcement at the Foundation-sponsored Tuesday Luncheon, that because of the generosity of our donors, we are now able to offer the Future Leaders Scholarship to a deserving college student every year instead of bi-annually.
  • The Foundation hosted its 12th Annual Student Paper Competition, which brings together the nation’s brightest college students together at the conference to compete and present research on a floodplain management related topic. This year, first prize was awarded to Grace Morris, University of Washington, for her paper titled, "Threshold-Based Planning for Westport WA: A Case Study.” Second prize was awarded to Kyle Julle, Northern Arizona University, for his paper titled, "Exploring the Relationship Between Public and Private Flood Responses.” Congratulations to Grace and Kyle!
  • Doug Plasencia, Moffatt & Nichol, stepped down as President of the ASFPM Foundation, after nine years of service. We want to thank Doug for his leadership and dedication over those years to help fulfill the mission and vision of the Foundation. Doug has passed the baton to Dale Lehman, AECOM, who faithfully served as Vice President, and was unanimously elected to now serve as the Foundation’s President. We wish the very best of luck to Doug as he steps down, and to Dale as he takes the helm to guide us into the future!

Over the next several months, we will be updating the ASFPM Foundation Website with more information about our important work, so please visit us often! In the meantime, if you would like to learn more about the Future Leaders Scholarship and Student Paper Competition, visit the Scholarship page at For more information on how to donate and help us to continue our work to fulfill our mission and vision, please visit
