Spring 2015 Workshop Sponsors
NMFMA would like to thank the following sponsors of the Spring 2015 Workshop in Albuquerque, NM:
Souder, Miller & Associates again expressed their support for NMFMA by sponsoring the Wednesday night Social at the MCM Elegante hotel. We all had a great night of networking and visiting with old friends at the social. All of our sponsors assisted with the cost of breaks throughout the workshop and the Wednesday business luncheon and dinner social. Thanks to all of our sponsors for your generosity and continuing support of NMFMA. Click HERE to see the Sponsorship Brochure.
The FEMA E273 Course is coming to New Mexico again this year. The course will be held from May 11 to May 14 at the Bachechi Open Space located at 9521 Rio Grande Blvd, NW in Albuquerque. For the E273 course please park in the Bachechi Open space lot off of Alameda. If traveling west on Alameda the entrance will be on your left, if you cross the river you have gone too far. Use the Bachechi site map to walk from the open space parking lot, to the Environmental Education Building. It’s not a long walk and is an the surrounding park is an excellent example of how a floodplain can be managed to be a beneficial aspect of your community.
The CFM exam will be proctored on Friday, May 15, following the course. The registration page is up on our web site. Click HERE for the registration page.
