Marc Gold, PE, CFM, (South Carolina) will present “Keeping Pace with Development in Riverine Floodplains” at the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM) Annual Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina, on May 9 at 3:45 p.m. EDT.

Marc is a professional engineer with ATM, a Geosyntec Company, and specializes in analyzing processes along coasts and in wetlands and estuarine environments, including sediment transport and nearshore hydrodynamics. His experience includes permitting, numerical modeling, statistical and time series analysis, and field-data collection. He uses his coastal engineering background to assess and design coastal structures, remap Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) flood zones and analyze related risks, design, and monitor beach nourishment projects, and assess conditions for coastal and waterfront projects.

The ASFPM annual conference addresses coastal issues, dams and levees, mapping, mitigation, modeling, natural and beneficial functions, National Flood Insurance Program, post-disaster recovery, risk communication, social justice, and stormwater and urban flooding.

Founded in 1977, the ASFPM is a scientific and educational nonprofit that works to reduce flood loss in the nation by promoting education, policies, and activities that mitigate current and future losses, costs, and human suffering caused by flooding and to protect floodplains. The organization educates policymakers on sound floodplain management policies and practices; improves the knowledge of floodplain managers through the Certified Floodplain Manager (CFM) program; delivers ongoing professional development and trainings; conducts applied research; promotes emerging technologies; and increases international awareness of flooding and flood loss reduction.
