OFMA Advanced Workshop
The Oklahoma Floodplain Managers Association (OFMA), at its own expense with Training Cadre Instructors, offer multiple Advanced Floodplain Management workshops. These workshops provide in-depth instruction on specific floodplain topics and are a follow-up on the FPM 101 workshop. Material covered in the workshop can be found on the OFMA Training website.
Note: OFMA instructors often travel long distances to teach these subjects, so please follow through with your attendance. Much time and effort is spent organizing and administering workshops by OWRB staff. Our goal is to keep them free of charge to the floodplain community.
