For all local FPMs:

REIMBURSEMENTS will be available for government employees attending the workshop. 

It is VITAL that you click on this link:  INFORMATION  for instructions from NMDHSEM about how to apply for reimbursement.   Bring this paper with you to the workshop.

Also, be sure to do these 3 things before you come to the workshop:



1.  If you have received reimbursement before, contact Marie Ciattini at ( for your valid vendor number.

2.  If you do not have a vendor number, fill out this - W-9 Form - and submit it to Marie Ciattini (contact above) as soon as possible as it could take several weeks to process and you will not be able to be reimbursed until one has been established.

3.  Be sure to bring a Rand McNally mileage printout with you if you are using your personal vehicle and plan on completing your submission at the workshop.  Use exact street addresses when you calculate mileage for your print out.

Immediately following the NMFMA luncheon and business meeting on Thursday there will be a session for all those wishing to apply for reimbursement or if you are unsure of how to do so (process, rules, and applicability).  NMDHSEM personnel will be at the workshop to explain the process and assist in filling out the proper reimbursement forms, which will be included in your conference packets. Blue pen is no longer a requirement of NMDHSEM when completing these forms.


As long as reimbursement is available from NMDHSEM, we will follow this same procedure at each workshop

    Spring 2016 Workshop Sponsors


NMFMA would like to thank the following sponsors of the Spring 2016 Workshop at Buffalo Thunder in Santa Fe, NM:

Souder, Miller & Associates again expressed their support for NMFMA by sponsoring the Wednesday night Social.  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.
