Tracking PDHs

For those who need to track their professional development hours, we will post a tracker sheet you can save for your records to self-check off the sessions you attend. Printed copies of the tracker will not be available onsite. Looking for your hours from 2020, 2021, 2022 or 2023? You can access your history and print out a certificate by clicking on the "My CEUs" link (at top of this page). 

Scholarships

Two scholarships will be awarded, one for someone working in floodplain management and one for someone working in stormwater management. In addition to the registration fee, this scholarship includes most meals at the conference. Hotel registration, travel expenses, and any other conference related expenses or incidentals are the sole responsibility of the scholarship winner. Winners will be expected to volunteer as needed during conference. If an individual has already registered for the conference, we will refund the registration fee if he/she is selected as a scholarship recipient. Apply Online before  the June 14 deadline.

16th Annual Golf Outing

Our 16th annual INAFSM golf scramble will be held at Legacy Hills Golf Club in Laporte (299 W Johnson Rd) on Tuesday, September 10th, with the first group teeing off at 12:00 pm. We only have 6 foursomes reserved so please get your reservation in early. Legacy Hills Golf Club is in the unique position of being both one of Indiana’s oldest golf courses, and one of Indiana’s newest golf courses. The course was originally established in 1904. Most recently, The Legacy Corporation purchased the course along with a considerable amount of land across the street. A tunnel was built to connect the front nine holes and the newly created back nine holes of the course, along with a new club house. Alongside the pro shop is a first class driving range.
Greens fees with cart are $44 per golfer ($35 for seniors 65+), paid directly to the course upon your arrival. Show up early to relax and enjoy lunch at the course, also on your own (dogs and burgers).

Contact John Crist ASAP to enter yourself or reserve a foursome of your own.

Silent Auction

Informational Flyer. Once again we'll be hosting a silent auction to support our Greg Main and Toni Cecil Memorial Scholarship funds! Would your business donate an item? Or you personally? Perhaps you and co-workers can put together a basket of items from your part of the state? Wondering what would make a good item? Just think about items on which you might like to bid; if the item or collection of items is interesting to you, then there's a good chance that others will be interested, too. Please contact Suzie Delay or call (317) 234-1063) to make a donation or request more information.

Logo Merchandise

Through out the year, Colored Threads takes orders for embroidered apparel featuring the INAFSM logo. For those who order before August 28 you can save on shipping and we'll bring your purchase to the conference for you.
