Trenton Masonic Temple
100 Barrack St
Trenton, NJ 08608-2008
Lunch will be served / Seating is limited/ Register here
New Jersey has some of the highest electricity prices in the country, which some argue have become a drag on the local economy and a reason for manufacturers and other large employers to leave the state. Does New Jersey have enough power capacity to serve its needs -- now and in the future? Will a reduction in power grid congestion lower prices for ratepayers? Should the state subsidize the construction of new power plants in order to increase capacity? Will subsidies jeopardize competitive wholesale markets? Are there other solutions to the problem? Join Tom Johnson, NJ Spotlight’s energy writer and co-founder, as he talks with leaders of the state’s power industry and government on the best way to lower prices and increase capacity without further endangering the state’s environment. Panelists include: Stefanie Brand, Director, New Jersey Division of Rate Counsel; Lee Solomon, President, New Jersey Board of Public Utilities, and Glen Thomas, President, The P3 Group.

NJAFM's 7th Annual Conference:   “Embracing Sustainability”

The Palace at Somerset Park
Somerset, NJ
Throughout New Jersey, numerous government and public agencies have implemented policies and programs to highlight the importance of “Embracing Sustainability” to preserve resources, mitigate adverse impacts of natural hazards, and create safe communities. Moving into the next decade, this focus on sustainability will continue to influence regulations and policies at the Federal, State and Local level, and will shape development patterns along our waterways and floodplains for years to come. Since flooding is New Jersey's #1 natural disaster concern, it is imperative that we adopt sustainability concepts in managing our water resources, wetlands and floodplains. The NewJersey Association for Floodplain Management (NJAFM) was established to promote sound floodplain management and to ensure productive dialog between private citizens and public officials to mitigate flood hazards and minimize flood risk to people and property throughout New Jersey.

The NJAFM 7th Annual Conference, cosponsored this year by the NJ Section of the American Water Resources Association (AWRA), provides a unique opportunity to further this mission and to facilitate integration of sustainability concepts into floodplain management. The conference includes plenary sessions, concurrent technical presentations, expanded exhibitors, and networking opportunities. Continuing Education Credits (CECs) will be offered for Municipal Construction and Code Officials, Professional Engineers, Professional Planners, Professional Land Surveyors, Certified Public Works Managers, and Certified Floodplain Managers. Opportunities for exhibitors and sponsors available.  For more information, contact Craig Wenger, NJAFM Secretary at 609-807-9674. To register or to access conference information and exhibitor/sponsorship information, go to: http://njafm.wildapricot.org
