The countdown was on, it was only a few weeks until the Florida Floodplain Managers Association’s 2020 Annual Conference in Orlando, and suddenly, we were all in the middle of a worldwide pandemic.  With National and State Stay-At-Home-Orders in place, our creative group of Board members and staff worked tirelessly transitioning the in-person conference into a successful virtual conference for April 7-11, even along with a clever spin on the theme: 2020 Working UNI-VIRTUAL-LY To Stop Flooding.  There were 367 attendees, 23 presenters and 18 sponsors.
