Applied Sciences adds two more Certified Floodplain Managers

Written by eliearaj on . Posted in News

At the Florida Floodplain Managers Association (FFMA) conference in April 2017, Elie Araj and Nick Charnas both passed the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM) exam and successfully obtained their Certified Floodplain Manager (CFM) designation.  Congratulations to Elie and Nick!

ASFPM describes the CFM role with great vision and responsibility: “The role of the nation’s floodplain managers is expanding due to increases in disaster losses, the emphasis on mitigation to alleviate the cycle of damage-rebuild-damage, and a recognized need for professionals to adequately address these issues. This certification program will lay the foundation for ensuring that highly qualified individuals are available to meet the challenge of breaking the damage cycle and stopping its negative drain on the nation’s human, financial and natural resources.” Applied Sciences is committed to and supportive of both FFMA and ASFPM.
