NMFMA Resolutions:
Since September 2000, the membership of NMFMA passed a number of resolutions aimed at improving the professionalism of its members, strengthening the state capability in floodplain management and requesting assistance
to community floodplain managers from the state and federal governments.
NMFMA had legislation introduced to implement several of these resolutions in 2001 and 2003. This legislation was passed and signed into law. Letters
were sent to the New Mexico Department of Public Safety (DPS), and to FEMA Region VI, requesting their assistance on other resolutions.
