Mike Jenkins, PhD, PE, (Florida) will co-present “How Three Coastal Communities Came Together to Build a Successful Regional Project: The Boca, Deerfield, and Hillsboro 2023 Projects” at the Florida Resilience Conference at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, at 3:55 p.m. EDT on September 27, 2023. The Florida Shore and Beach Preservation Association (FSBPA) and Resiliency Florida are hosting this conference, which includes FSBPA’s annual policy meeting on beach management, from September 27 through September 29, 2023. ATM, a Geosyntec Company, is a conference sponsor.
Mike’s co-presenters are Thomas Pierro of Coastal Protection Engineering and Peter Seidle of Moffat & Nichol. This joint nourishment project won the 2023 Best Restored Beach award and will be honored during the American Shore and Beach Preservation Association National Coastal Conference at the Omni Hotel in Providence, Rhode Island, on October 12, 2023.
Mike is a Senior Principal Coastal Engineer with ATM and has more than 30 years of experience focused on coastal projects.
The Florida Resilience Conference provides a professional forum for in-depth discussion on the state’s burgeoning resilience programs. The conference program features concurrent sessions on beach management, energy, infrastructure, and smart planning, as well as networking among 400 attendees with similar interests.
The FSBPA was formed in response to the recognition that erosion is a statewide problem that cannot be successfully addressed by individual cities and counties alone. Resiliency Florida is a leading voice in Tallahassee and Washington, DC, helping communities to plan for and adapt to the future impacts of weather and sea-level rise.
