To ensure that local floodplain managers have a chance to develop and grow their professional expertise, the Ohio Floodplain Management Association’s (OFMA) Managing Board has approved the granting of limited scholarships for attendance at the annual conference. Scholarships cover the cost of registration and may include one night’s lodging for floodplain managers who work and live in communities located outside of Franklin and contiguous counties.
If you are interested in attending this year’s Statewide Floodplain Conference on July 26-27, 2023 and your community cannot provide training/education funds to support you, we would like to offer you an opportunity for an OFMA Scholarship. Please submit your request for the scholarship on your local government letterhead. Indicate if you are requesting both registration and lodging (if eligible).
Scholarships will be granted on a first-come-first-serve basis by the Committee. Scholarships will not be awarded to Federal or state agency representatives or private sector consultants who may be serving as local floodplain managers.
To learn more about OFMA please visit our web site at www.ofma.org. The DEADLINE for requesting a scholarship is June 16, 2023 (or sooner if the available scholarships have been awarded prior to the deadline)!
