    Fall 2015 Workshop Sponsors


NMFMA would like to thank the following sponsors of the Fall 2015 Workshop in Ruidoso, NM:

Souder, Miller & Associates again expressed their support for NMFMA by sponsoring the Wednesday night Social at the Ruidoso Convention Center.  The social, as always, was a great opportunity to visit with old friends and network with others who work in the field of floodplain management.  All of our sponsors assisted with the cost of breaks throughout the workshop, the Wednesday business luncheon and the Thursday night dinner.  Thanks to all of our sponsors for your generosity and continuing support of NMFMA.  Click HERE to see the Sponsorship Brochure.
