About TFMA


The Texas Floodplain Management Association (TFMA) is an organization of professionals involved in floodplain management, flood hazard mitigation, the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), flood preparedness, warning and disaster recovery. The Association has become a respected voice in floodplain management practice and policy in Texas. The Association includes flood hazard specialists from local, state and federal governments, the mortgage, insurance and research communities, and the associated fields of flood zone determination, engineering, hydraulic forecasting, emergency response, water resources, geographic information systems, and others.

TFMA has gained recognition within the national floodplain management community as one of the first to become a State Chapter of the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM). Many of our members have been actively involved in the ASFPM organization by presenting papers at national conferences, serving on the Board of Directors and numerous committees, and providing significant input into ASFPM's activities such as the national certification of the nation’s floodplain managers.

TFMA has pioneered the professional certification of local floodplain managers and is in the forefront of efforts to increase the educational opportunities and professional skills of the state’s floodplain management professionals. TFMA has now joined the ranks of those few states having certification programs that are nationally accredited through ASFPM and provides training and testing for those seeking their National Certification as Floodplain Managers.
