    Presented by Louisette Scott & Roderick Scott
    Do you want to protect your property and need an idea of where to start? Building owners must initiate and complete flood mitigation projects on their buildings, yet there is very little information out there for the owners of older historic buildings built before flood mapping.Two of our conference presenters, Roderick Scott & Louisette Scott, are offering a free public workshop intended to give property owners a toe-hold in the world of flood risk management. This award-winning program will review flood risk, flood maps, the all-important Elevation Certificate, and the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

    Examples of the two primary approaches to flood mitigation — dry floodproofing and elevation — will be presented and evaluated.

    Crucially, this workshop will also address paying for these projects and the funding sources available.
