Date: Wednesday 9 November, 2022

Time: 10:00 Morning Tea for 10:30 Meeting. A light lunch will be available at the conclusion of the meeting.

Afternoon Workshop - Flood Forecasting 

We have assembled a number of industry leaders in flood forecasting who will lead a discussion on the technology, approaches and some myth-busting related to flood forecasting systems.

Following the extreme weather events of February/March this year which saw riverine and creek flash flooding occurring, the value of forecasting as a tool in understanding potential flood impacts and supporting informed community messaging has never been greater. As we move into the summer storm season this workshop will provide a timely opportunity for Members to find out more about forecasting and to engage in a formative discussion with industry practitioners.

Please Note: AECOM’s policy and firm commitment to workplace hazards require that you do not attend the event on the day if you are feeling ill or subject to any government isolation order.



Date: Thursday 17 November, 2022

Place: Mercure Hotel, 818-820 George Street, Sydney

Time: 10:00 Morning Tea for 10:30 Meeting. A light lunch will be available at the conclusion of the meeting.

Afternoon Workshop - The 2022 NSW Flood Inquiry – Round Table Discussion on the Planning Recommendations and What Next

Following release of the Independent NSW Flood Inquiry Recommendations an FMA Member Working Group was established to discuss and document what we don’t understand, what we support and concerns we hold from a flood risk management practitioner point of view. 

Notes of Working Group will provide a starting point for the Workshop discussion. 

The aim of the Workshop is to consolidate the views of FMA Members and provide commentary to the NSW Government to consider when finalising their response to the Inquiry and implementing recommendations.
