FMA Digital Conference Wrap Up
30th May 2020
During the 20th and 21st May, FMA held its National Conference online for the very first time. FMA has been convening it's annual Conferences for 60 years and it was with great excitement that we were able to adapt to the current social restrictions and go DIGITAL!
Over 800 people from Australia and around the world registered to attend the two day live-stream event, with additional extended access to over 20 Pre-Recorded presentations focussing on flood risk management. During the Conference, not only was there Q&A opportunity with live presenters, but a Virtual Trivia Night with our Young Floodplain Managers.
The Digital format of the FMA Conference was only successful due to the encouragement and support of FMA Members, sponsors and presenters. While it was change from our scheduled in-person event at Toowoomba, it was soothing to be able to connect with like-minded colleagues from around the nation and overseas.
Thank you all for taking part and making time for FMA during your not-business-as-usual circumstances. It truly demonstrates the strength of the FMA network and the links we have made over our past events.
