The Virginia Floodplain Management Association (VFMA), in conjunction with the Virginia Lakes and Watersheds Association (VLWA), is seeking abstracts for presentation at the 2015 Virginia Water Conference in Richmond, VA.  Recent conferences have provided an excellent opportunity to learn about current local, state, and federal regulations and practices in floodplain management.  The conference is typically attended by 300 professionals from the public and private sectors.  Presentations are selected based on the abstract summaries, which will be published in the conference proceedings.

Submittal Requirements:

Please submit floodplain management-related abstracts to VFMA in a Microsoft Word™ format.  Please use a letter-sized format, one-inch margins, and 10-point typeface with a maximum of two such pages.  Abstracts must include the presentation title as well as the name, organization, mailing address, e-mail, and phone number of the presenters.  Separately, submit a brief biographical sketch for each speaker.  Include name, organization, position, college/university, and related interests.  Submit electronic copies of the abstract and biographical sketch to Jeff Smith, P.E., PMP, CFM at:

Please do not submit materials for floodplain-management-related topics to VLWA, but to VFMA as noted above.  If topics are received that would fit better in a concurrent VLWA conference track, VFMA will pass those abstracts to VLWA for consideration.  Authors will be notified regarding acceptance by January 9, 2015, and the program will be published by January 31, 2015.

All speakers must register for the conference and pay the appropriate registration fee through VLWA.  VLWA handles the registrations and all fees and has a concurrent call for papers.  In addition, exhibition space and conference sponsorships are available. Please visit the VLWA website for additional details or contact Jeff Smith.
