INAFSM Becomes Charter Member of National Stormwater Group
In an effort to provide more benefits and national information to our members that are interested in MS4 and EPA stormwater issues, INAFSM has become a charter member of the National Municipal Stormwater Alliance (NMSA). This alliance is and will be made up of associations like ours so that we all have a common national voice. Click here for a summary of the alliance’s purpose, goals, and status. NMSA will, of course, operate independently of INAFSM. INAFSM will have a place on their leadership, Steering Committee, and we are currently serving on their Executive Committee.
The INAFSM Board of Directors announces with much sadness the passing of one of its founders and greatest supporters. Greg Main, NFIP State Coordinator, passed away last week following a long illness. His presence will be missed by so many. Rest in peace, Greg.
Memorial contributions may be made to Ball Memorial Hospice. You may sign the condolence guest book by clicking here.
