KAMM celebrates 15 years as an association.  Come Celebrate with Us!! 

We invite KAMM friends to take part in this year’s annual conference and pre-conference activities by submitting an abstract for the conference program.  We are seeking abstracts suitable to this year’s theme – KAMM XV: Celebrate the Past, Inspire the Future for our anticipated largest conference ever.  If you are a local, regional, or federal official, an agency, a consultant, a KAMM member, or anyone else with an interest in mitigation, codes or standards, stormwater management, green infrastructure, stream restoration, or community revitalization, we invite you to be a part of our conference program.

Has your community implemented a project, plan, or action that you want to showcase?  Have you collaborated with the private sector or state partners to identify and mitigate a key piece of infrastructure?  For fifteen years, KAMM has promoted the Mitigation Matters concept.  As we celebrate our fifteenth year of making a difference to communities and stakeholders across the Commonwealth we invite everyone to share your success stories that demonstrate the importance of celebrating the past and inspiring the future.
