Professional Development Committee

KAMM Committees

We encourage KAMM members to participate in KAMM committees.  Committees will play a big role in 2017.  Plan to join committee members at the conference to build a strategy.

Participation in committees allows KAMM members to promote issues, challenges, and best practices that are important to them as well as an opportunity to network.  KAMM members should be recruited to assist in committee activities, develop ground rules, and delegate activities.  Ultimately, the committees will help develop and recommend policy to the KAMM Board.

Road to Forming Committees – What Topics Interest KAMM Members

On the 2015 KAMM Conference registration form, we asked attendees to rate mitigation topics by their top 5 interests.  Link to the Mitigation Topics Survey and Results from 2015 Conference Attendees.

Professional Development Committee Mission Statement

The mission of the Professional Development Committee (PDC) is to provide vision, leadership, and direction to KAMM members regarding issues affecting the floodplain management and mitigation professions.  The PDC strives to maintain a high standard of integrity, ethical behavior and practices, professional conduct, and skill for all mitigation managers and encourages certification via the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM) Certified Floodplain Manager (CFM) program.  PDC also strives to expand and promote the professional status and legal responsibility of the CFM and will review and monitor professional education opportunities for mitigation managers.
