Membership in the Mississippi Flood Plain Management Association includes representatives from all levels of government (floodplain administrators, permit officials, agency personnel), the private sector (planners, engineers, surveyors, realtors, bankers, lenders, and insurance agents), and the university community.
Full members, any public or private professional or elected official involved in flood management, may vote on Association issues, serve on committees, and receive discounts on Association activities.
Student members are full or part-time students with an interest in flood management.Although students cannot vote, they may participate on committees.
Our strength lies in a diverse membership representing a cross-section of people from and about Mississippi. We, therefore, include all regions in our decisions, operations, and functions. In addition to a Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer, the Board of Directors seats eight representatives from the planning regions of the state, the Chair Emeritus, Workshop Coordinator, and Committee Chairs. The Regional Representatives work on the Annual Conference and workshops; volunteer as speakers at local meetings; help develop responses to issues when the board chooses to comment on issues of state or national concern; distribute information to their regional members; and bring ideas from the region to the board. We encourage you to become active in the Mississippi Floodplain Management Association.
