    Engaging Your Local Elected Official in Coastal and Floodplain Management

    As extreme weather events increase in frequency and severity nationwide, the need for engagement between local officials and floodplain managers on hazard mitigation topics has never been greater. Join NACo and the Association of State Floodplain Managers for an interactive 2-hour webinar to learn about strategies for risk communication, issues surrounding community liability for mitigation actions (or inaction) and funding options available to local communities. This workshop will enhance the ability of local practitioners to engage with their elected officials, identify relevant tools and resources to build resilience, and work across departments, jurisdictions, and sectors on resilience issues. This workshop will showcase NACo’s new Local Government Guide to Coastal Management – developed in partnership with the Association of State Floodplain Managers, the Coastal States Organization and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration – and work being done on the ground by Gulf Coast communities participating
