Who We Are

The Oklahoma Floodplain Managers Association (OFMA) brings together people with a common interest in floodplain management. Members include concerned citizens, public employees and elected officials, engineers, planners, contractors, lenders, insurance agents, real estate professionals, students, corporate partners and local, state and federal agencies. Our objectives include promoting interest in flood damage abatement, improving cooperation among government agencies, and encouraging innovative approaches to managing Oklahoma’s floodplains. In addition, we believe a unified membership can present one strong voice to communicate with the state legislature on flood-related issues. OFMA was organized in November 1990 and is a chapter of the Association of State Floodplain Managers, Inc.

Our Vision

The Oklahoma Floodplain Managers Association advocates the protection of the natural functions of the floodplain through education, training and service to Oklahomans.

Our Mission

We encourage and support, with our partners, flood-safe development and flood mitigation. We promote sound floodplain management practices and the natural and cultural benefits of the floodplain. We support the floodplain management profession through education and certification.

Saving lives and reducing property loss from floods are our ultimate goals!
