The State of North Carolina is hosting a webinar on Tuesday, April 11 at 2:00 PM EDT to introduce the Certified Floodplain Surveyor (CFS) Program.  The purpose of this webinar is to provide the attendees an overview of the CFS program that was implemented in North Carolina in 2002.  


FEMA’s pilot program in North Carolina was preceded by agreements between FEMA, the various local stakeholders in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), and the regulators of surveying in the state.  The partners included FEMA and its regional office, the North Carolina Society of Surveyors (NCSS), the National Society of Professional Surveyors (formerly the American Congress for Surveying and Mapping), and the North Carolina Division of Emergency Management (NCEM).


The benefits of the CFS program include:


  • Promoting professional stature to the general public relating to flood mapping, elevation certificates, floodplain management and insurance;
  • Promoting better LOMC applications, reducing multiple reviews which saves time and money;
  • Promoting accurate and complete Elevation Certificates enhancing proper flood insurance rating and community compliance with the National Flood Insurance Program.


The webinar will provide information on how to:

  • Implement a CFS program in your state;
  • The benefits of the CFS program;
  • The information that is available from North Carolina to help you start a program in your state.
