Presentation (pdf, 6.07 MB)| Handout (pdf, 4.80 MB)
While the USACE Flood Risk Management Program is making every effort not to speak in 'alphabet soup', this optional session will provide a general background on the USACE and the Flood Risk Management and Silver Jackets Programs. Participants will learn about the USACE Communities of Practice, the Driving Down Risk figure, and the initiation of the National Flood Risk Management Program, as well as a brief overview of the USACE structure and terminology. Participants will also be introduced to a host of relatively new positions in Flood Risk Management and Silver Jackets coordination. For an agency employee who has not worked with the USACE on a regular basis, this session should be informative.
