"The presentation was informative and potrntially relevant to my FEMA role as a part-time DAE Hazard Mitigation Specialist."

"Great! Thanks!"
LW Abel

"Dave provided a nuanced but well-rounded summary of the NFIP status and HazMit in general. There was a program sales job going on, but instead a discussion about the major challenges - and opportunities - on the NFIP. Dave needs to come back much more often!"

"I am new to the flood plain management role and the use of acronyms without explanation took me off track as I needed to look them up online. Maybe the materials that get sent in advance of the calls could come with some potential acronyms that the presenter will use. "

Stacey Camillo
City of San Francisco

"Problem with audio, but was helped out by Lori Wieber and we figured out what the issue was and resolved it."

"Good info for my office."
